1. Nobody creeps on you at the office holiday party.
You know that one inappropriate guy at your old job who used to leer at your chest during the Christmas party open bar? Not a concern.
2. And if someone does, your coworkers swarm to your rescue.
On the off chance that one of the men at work drunkenly hits on you, there's no way that 5 women will not immediately call him out on it and refer to him as a sketchbomb for the rest of the year.
3. Less potential for office romance (always a bad idea).
You won't fall into a romantic situation with a guy that you didn't ask for and makes everything kinda uncomfortable.
4. Buuut your coworkers all have great friends to set you up with.
And they're jazzed to make the connection.
5. Studies show that women are actually more stressed at home than they are at work.
So if you've got a bunch of pretty chilled-out women in an office, chances are it'll be quite pleasant and fun.
6. You can have a baller office clothing swap.
Not to mention the drive to do it, since women's office attire is always more expensive than men's. I mean, shoes alone.
7. Someone will always show you where the bathroom is right away on your first day.
Male supervisors never do that.
8. You have had similar experiences.
Whether at work or in life (dating, attending weddings, etc.), you can generally relate to each other.
9. You obsess over the same TV shows and movies.
Like Sex and the City, Pitch Perfect, Orange Is the New Black, and more.
10. The birthday treats are the best.
Like beautiful multicolored doughnuts that are perfectly Instagrammed before they're eaten.
11. You probably have access to at least one older woman whose life and career you admire.
This woman will give you advice on things that you're freaking out about because you're a lost twentysomething.
12. Your coworkers are inspiring and push you to be better/smarter/funnier.
Being around other Type-A, overachieving, and hilarious women makes you work harder.
13. Your coworkers genuinely care about you as a person.
Not just as a cog in the machine. (Unless you're working at Runway. And even then, Miranda Priestly has at least a partial soul!)
14. If your shirt comes unbuttoned, your coworkers will kindly point it out instead of just awkwardly ogling and hoping you don't notice.
Even your fun lesbian coworkers wouldn't leave you hanging like that.
15. Someone will always alert you that there's a giant sale going on at a clothing store you love.
Oh snap, 70 percent off at Topshop?! I totally would have missed that without a roomful of women talking about it.
16. If you're crying in the bathroom, someone always notices and comforts you without freaking out and not knowing what to do.
And they don't judge if it's over a guy or some other emotional mini-drama.
17. They also have the good sense to leave you alone when they think that's what you want.
As opposed to a man, especially if he's younger than Dad-age. One tear on your face and he's basically ready to call the suicide hotline.
18. Someone always has a tampon.
19. You can speak freely without worrying about adjusting your work persona to adapt to men's opinions.
Not that you should adapt to men's opinions, but many women are conscious of not being a "certain kind of girl" or a "certain kind of female employee" in a male-dominated workplace. We're getting over it and leaning in—but a lady-prevalent office eliminates the worry entirely.
20. Nobody thinks you're bossy just because you are assertive.
See above. Shouldn't be the case in a co-ed office, but as we all know, it is.
21. Someone always has a really great out-of-the-way girly cocktail bar recommendation.
You talk about new restaurants and bars all the time!
22. They understand why you come into the office wearing sneakers and leave heels under your desk, and they don't judge.
Hate to pull the curtain back and truth-bomb any dudes reading this (if any are), but heels…are…uncomfortable.
23. Secret Santa is infinitely better.
If you get a guy for your Secret Santa, you get to do the whole "Is it awkward to get him a tie/does he even read books/how the hell do you shop for a guy" dance—and if a guy gets you, you're gonna get some overly non-sexual knickknack or old person gift. But if it's all girls, they know your taste and will appreciate whatever sale-rack delight you get them.
24. They understand maternity leave—and will fight for you to have it.
There are definitely men who are like, "I know, a baby or whatever, but three weeks is a long time." Not when a human just came out of you. K, thanks.
