History of National Girlfriends Day
The term girlfriend is believed to have come into existence in 1859. The word replaced the term she-friend which was a way of describing a woman‘s female friend in youth. In the early 20th century, however, the word started being used to describe a female romantic partner.
National Girlfriends Day came to existence in 2006 through sisterwoman.com. Two women namely Allie Savarino Kline and Sally Rodgers are credited for founding the platform although the site no longer exists today. The primary goal of establishing the site was to create a social networking platform where women could interact, discuss parenting and other topics, but most importantly become girlfriends.
