This video is the second in HuffPost Women's four-part series on female friendship inspired by Wendi Murdoch and Florence Sloan's upcoming film Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, which will have its premiere in Los Angeles on July 15.
One of the film's principal themes is the power of female friendship -- to overcome life's obstacles as well as enhance its joys and successes. Wendi and Florence met 10 years ago at a dinner party and have been an emotional support system for each other every since. Partnering for this special film project has brought them even closer together.
This series' first video, which we ran last week, features Wendi and Florence talking about how they became friends and what that bond has meant for each of them.
Men don't talk this way. But, if they did, their friendships would probably mean more and last longer. Women have a way of cutting through the bullshit that I don't think men are smart enough to appreciate. These two women speak openly and honestly and it doesn't sound forced or canned. It sounds low maintenance. And men should try to do low maintenance as often as they can.
