What is a Sisterhood? A sister is the best gift that your parents can give you. To quote Isadora James, “ A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.” She is that one person who will not constantly remind you of who you were but rather celebrate the person you are becoming. She will dream with you and bring life into your future. Sisterhood is something firmly rooted in the bond that you share with your sister since you know the meaning of life. She is that part of you who is immovable no matter what happens in life. Having a sister is like a blessing from God when he decides to fill our world that will make our lives sweeter, more beautiful and special. As we grow up we realize that we need people to enjoy our brief journey of life, to cry, to share those bigger than life dreams, to create memories that we will cherish till the very end and to have someone to lean on. The bond between sisters is uncommon, remarkable and exceptional. It is unique in its own way and it cannot be defined in a predetermined way by any preconceived notion. This is primarily because every single relationship between sisters is distinct in their own way. Like anything in this world, this is not a smooth journey at all. It has its own ups and downs but what really matters is even after everything when the storm is over we do not stay the same person who entered into the storm. We change, we evolve and above all, this bond between sisters emerges victorious. Thus sisterhood is not only a bond of this lifetime it is beyond that. It is unbreakable. The bond of our sisterhood anchors us with a solidarity that allows us to ride out any storm, however, the greatest blessing of all is that through all the ups and downs, all the trials and the heartaches the bond between sisters can always find solace and peace with each other. The relationship between sisters is all about unconditional love and friendship. The perks of having a sister includes that sisters can talk openly with each other any time, they know each other’s most intimate secrets with the assurance that these secrets are safe with that person. Importance of Sisterhood Sisterhood is important and much more significant than friendships not only because it is marked by blood relationship. The bond that two sisters share is unconditional and forever. The bond between sisters contains the early seed of friendship even before a baby girl can understand the meaning or learn the word friendship. She already finds a companion in her sister who is there for her, who sees her both in her vulnerability as well as in her resilient state. Sisterhood is having someone whom you can connect to, share your deepest grief and thoughts and of course the best days of your life. The fact that sisterhood is ahead of friendship is proven when we regard our closest friends as a long lost sister. The concept of sisterhood surpasses blood relationship. You do not need to be best friends with your sister, you just need to support each other no matter what. Most of the time, you grow up and adopt the same views of life and share the same values. The intricate special bond that sisters share makes them want for each other nothing but the best. They push each other to be the best versions of ourselves. That is why a sister in no way can justify if her sister settles for anything less. It is this sister love that impels a woman to see her sister to be unapologetically ambitious about her choices and is always eager like a mother to help each other so that they make the right decisions in life. It is this power and motherly affection that is found in a blood relationship that makes the bond between sisters unbreakable. In our present society, the establishment of sisterhood is so much more important than brotherhood. This is because we still inhabit a male-dominated, patriarchal world that seeks to protect male ideals. Men have always had a mutual feeling of brotherhood, but women had to and are still fighting to achieve equality ,to be able to raise their voice, to ensure that their voice is heard. The little progress that we could achieve is because women across history decided to fight not as an individual but they decided to fight a collective battle for their equal democratic rights, the right to have their children’s custody, right to abortion, the discrimination against them in social, cultural and domestic sphere by including all the women in a realm of a sisterhood.
