A Tribe called Sisterhood
Yes, I’m a man. I don’t know anything about the intimate, sisterhood-like friendships between women. But I do find it interesting to think about it, because honestly: no matter how you look at it, a group of girl friends have all what it takes to be a tribe. And that is more than a group chat on WhatsApp.

Is it something historically?
It’s a kind of magic.
A true sisterhood can get some divine things to start happening: women lift each other up. Realizing they are on the same team, they share the same secrets. You know them when you see them: there is electricity between them, talking becomes effortless as they bond over books, life paths and guilty pleasures. Queen B approves. In fact, being in a lady tribe where joy and sorrow are shared, is important in staying balanced. Queen B approves, again.
Female friendships are just a hop to our sisterhood, and sisterhood can be a very powerful forceJane Fonda
Keep calm and get a lady tribe.
It is scientifically proven that men and women behave very differently when faced with stress. Men deal with a fight or flight strategy, which is generally more aggressive. But women on the other hand produce a hormone called Oxytocin, which compels them to seek social support.
That's why girl friends are like a tribe: there's a communal goal and interest, a bunch of rituals and a strong social bond that can hold for a very long time. Jane Fonda and here close friend Lily Tomlin had a TED talk on the meaning of (their) sisterhood.
Get all the good from Gaga.
Don’t miss out on the bad stuff either.
