International Women's Friendship Month
Celebrate International Women’s Friendship Month each September.
Created by Kappa Delta Sorority, International Women's Friendship Month provides an opportunity for all women to celebrate their female friends throughout the month of September. All Kappa Delta chapters host annual International Women’s Friendship Month celebrations.
Mark your calendars and join us in celebrating women's friendship in September! For more information on the month, please visit the Confidence Coalition website.
Ask any woman – there's something special about her friendships with other women. Our female friends know us better than anyone else. They are there to listen, to console, and to encourage. They are our loudest cheerleaders and our most compassionate confidantes. Our women friends come in a wide variety – sister, mother, neighbor, childhood playmate, college roommate. We make connections at the playground, the workplace, the gym and over the proverbial back fence.
From a leisurely Saturday afternoon over coffee to a late night phone call, our relationships with other women can sustain us and give life depth. We need to remember the important roles our women friends play in our lives.
In 1999, Kappa Delta Sorority created National Women's Friendship Day to do just that. And in 2009, alongside Kappa Delta’s creation of theConfidence Coalition, the celebration was expanded to the entire month of September. Now known as International Women's Friendship Month, the celebration offers all women the opportunity to remember their cherished friends. All Kappa Delta chapters host International Women’s Friendship Month celebrations annually in September.

Over the years, many companies have supported the month including General Foods International, Avon’s mark cosmetics, Maidenform, Karen Neuburger, Vera Bradley and more. National Women’s Friendship Day has been covered in numerous newspapers, from Alaska to Arkansas, Nebraska to New Jersey and everywhere in between. The day has been mentioned in several magazines, including Pink Magazine, Memory Makers Magazine, Country Woman, Teen People, Today’s Christian Woman, and Memphis Woman. We are proud to report that we now have 34 states with governor’s proclamations endorsing the day. It is an exciting time!
We encourage you to join the celebration!
