Scripture instructs women to minister to each other. In Titus 2:4-5 women are told to train each other "to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God." God specifically designed us to meet each other's needs. The Divine Author of Scripture knows women need other women to help light the way through life.
