Why Is Sisterhood So Good for Us?


There are several studies that highlight how women are biologically wired to be around other women.

One of nature’s “feel good” hormones - Oxytocin, the “bonding hormone”, is released in women’s brains in 3 instances: during sex, during breastfeeding, and when women are in groups of other women.

Our brain dumps oxytocin to tell us when something is good for us. It feels good so we will repeat it. Nature has us wired to bond with our lovers, our babies, and other women.

In a UCLA study, scientists found that when stressed, men tended to go off alone or react aggressively (“fight or flight”). Women, on the other hand, tend to their young or gather together to commiserate, cook, and be with others, usually other women (“tend and befriend”).

For women, getting together with other women is one of the healthiest and most effective forms of stress relief. It feels particularly good because of all that oxytocin that is released when we do so. People with high levels of oxytocin are calmer, more relaxed, more social, and less anxious.

Last but not least, an Emory study found that women learn better when surrounded by groups of other women. Our brains even work better when we are together!

Sisterhood is good for you!

Having a community of like-minded women is valuable because it can provide you with:

  • Mentorship
  • Support
  • Inspiration
  • Accountability
  • An antidote to the “Good Old Boys Network” 
  • The “Sassy Sister Network” 

When I first got into real estate investment and was surrounded by so many men, I desired to have a community of women that I could support and who could support me as I went into my real estate investing.

I created Real Estate Investor Goddesses as the answer to that desire. We are a virtual community (we have members based all over the world), and an off-line community (we also strive to get together in person COVID-permitting). Whether near or far, it's a sisterhood that you can rely on to inspire and support you as you go and grow.
