If you already dedicate a lot of attention, time, and energy to your female friendships, then you might think you don’t need to be reminded of how important they are. But even then, it can feel nice to hear your efforts supported and encouraged. As for women who are letting your female friendships fall by the wayside—what are you doing? Female friends are not just there to act as surrogate significant others until you find a romantic one, or until your career takes off.

Here are 15 reasons maintaining female friendships throughout your life is so important.
