"One of the benefits of being a mature well-educated woman is that you're not afraid of expletives. And you have no fear to put a fool in his place. That's the power of language and experience. You can learn a lot from Shakespeare" - Judi Dench

Various studies have found female friendships can protect you from a wide range of serious illnesses, add years to your life, help you bounce back from trauma, and give you a leg up in your career.

-They were unsung heroes from all walks of life, who did what needed to be done by keeping it simple and real
- They were driven by a higher purpose
- They did what needed to be done with no expectation of personal gain
- They depended on people they had not known for very long, and each other, but were connected by a common goal and a belief in a “shared” end result.
