Why Women Need a Tribe

Here’s a resource we love: Why Women Need a Tribe from UPLIFT. Read about how sisterhood might be the most powerful force in a woman’s health.


  1. My four sisters, and all the dozens of women who have loved me like a sister are the very reason I am still alive and well and thriving! GOD BLESS OUR SISTERS!!!!!!! One and all!!!!!!!!

      Thanks for sharing that Anne! I too am grateful for my sisters whom I have met throughout my journey—smiling.

  2. “Friendships reduce stress” = YEP! Thanks for the resource 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and making this community grow. I have a line in my book that relates the idea of a butterfly flapping its wing and causing storms across the world—to the idea that we don’t know where small breaths of inspiration might lead. I do know that my stress went down a few notches after meeting you today!

  3. Great resource!

    Sisterhood is the miraculous thread that weaves us together and makes the world a better place to live. Most of the men I know have friendships with other men based on a common hobby or work. When those shared activities go away, the friendship fades. My female friendships start with a common thread, and that’s just the starting point for friendship.

      What a lovely comment Dana! Thanks for sharing this and for taking a risk to be a Gutsy Goddess. To quote one of my favorite movies, Casablanca, “I think this is the beginning os a beautiful friendship.”

  4. I love this! It’s so true and I also like the fact that science is used to prove it (although we all know it’s true intuitively). Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Tammy. I met a woman through LaughingAtTheSky who is a internationally-recognized therapist, a professor of psychology, researcher on the status of women for the UN, who organizes women’s power circles. Her decades of research also proves this out. I hope to participate in one of her woman’s power circles some day. (You would make a great participant too!) I’m so glad you connected with me and look forward to learning more about your work with connecting women—it’s important.
