Sisterhood is one of the most important thing in the life a black women. There are many different types of friends, the ones you can confide in, the ones you can depend on for support, the ones that you can go out and have a good time with. The problem with all of these is the fact that they can end. Sisterhood is something that goes deeper than that, it is something that is life-long and unconditional. Sula and Nel shared a sisterhood bond in Sula. Though they might not have endured the same struggles during their times together and apart, both women experienced the same type of bond, the bond of sisterhood.
Sula and Nel depended on each other for support and self-acceptance. It was like they were not complete if the other one was not around. They began their friendship when they were little girls. "Their friendship was intense as it was sudden" (Morrison 53).
This intensity was the beginning of the sisterhood that they shared. They both were fatherless and complimented each other with their opposite behavior. They were completely different people which made people refer to them as two parts of one whole and they both grew to be very similar to the mothers that they lacked proper attention from. They were completely different people which made people refer to them as two parts of one whole and they both grew to be very similar to the mothers that they lacked proper attention from. Sula became wild and sexually liberated, similar to the opinion that the community had about her mother. Nel became a wife to her husband and enjoyed her "neat" life the way that her mother enjoyed her neat home.
Sula was raised by a mother who obviously liked her deceased brother more...
