9 Times Women Complimented Women And Showed Us The True Meaning Of Sisterhood

No. 4 is too sweet for this world.

Some of the best compliments for women are given to them by other women. Whether it's in the office, at a party, or just on the street, it's so powerful when women compliment each other. When most of the world still holds sexist ideals and patriarchal values, a woman affirming her fellow woman through positive and kind words can feel like sisterhood. 

There's this annoying stereotype about women being unable to coexist in harmony — that we have to constantly compete for affection, attention, success, and status. When women and girls uplift each other with encouraging compliments, we can defy those unfair expectations and create even more opportunities for women. The truth is, there is room for all of us. It's totally possible to sit at the highest level of awesome without bringing another woman down. 

When it comes to complimenting women, there's huge emphasis on making sure people compliment without mentioning appearance and mostly focus on complimenting achievements and personality traits. However, when it comes to women complimenting women, the boundaries are a bit more lax as physical compliments can be empowering, especially in a world filled with beauty standards that pit women against each other
