The goal of National Women's Friendship Day is to promote special friendship among women and for women to show appreciation for other women. It has been observed the third Sunday in September since 1999.
National Women's Friendship Day was created by women, and for women. The Kappa Delta Sorority created this very special day in 1999. This sorority, founded in 1897 in Farmville, Va., has over 180,000 members. The governors of dozens of states have issued proclamations in support of Women's Friendship on this day, but it is not an official National holiday.
