“What a girl’s night does for women is tap into an essential truth about our gender, which is that women need to be heard. What is true for most women is that the men in their lives, be it a spouse, a boyfriend, or even colleagues at work, don’t have the capacity to hear them when they are feeling stressed or overwhelmed. Women need a break from the demands of their day-to-day lives,” family therapist Maud Purcell told the CtPost.

The quality time with friends on girls’ night is a shortcut to general wellbeing and can help you steer clear of depression and anxiety.
