On the surface, Pretty Little Liars is about four girls trying to escape blackmail. Dig a little deeper, though, and you’ll find the most important aspect of the show is the girls’ tight friendship. Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Emily have stuck together through thick and thin and no matter how many times they’re knocked down, their friendship always gets back up even stronger. The gang is a perfect example of how women are better if they stick together — although hopefully we’ll never have to go through anything close to what the Liars have dealt with during the past six seasons.
In honor of the seventh season of Pretty Little Liars coming to our screens June 21st, we’ve rounded up 11 ways the girls are our role models when it comes to friendship.
