History of National Women's Friendship Month
National Women's Friendship Month first began as National Women's Friendship Day in 1999 (celebrated the third Sunday in September each year). Created by Kappa Delta Sorority for all women, the day offered a chance for women to celebrate their special bonds with female friends.
As a national sorority with a membership of over 200,000 women, the leaders of Kappa Delta were well aware of the importance of women friends. They also recognized that friendship was not exclusive to the sorority.
"All women find strength, comfort and inspiration from their girlfriends," said Melanie Schild, Executive Director of Kappa Delta and the brains behind the creation of the celebration. "In a time of increasing demands, we want to encourage women to take the time to nurture and celebrate these important relationships."
Following the 10th anniversary of National Women's Friendship Day in 2008, it became apparent that one day just wasn't enough, so the celebration was expanded to the entire month of September beginning in 2009.
