b. Sociability is associated with friendship because it conveys the concept of
being social purely for the sake of enjoyment with no ulterior motives
c. Friendship-a voluntary, informal, and personal relationship. Relationship

friendships were important, and women were seen as generally inferior at
anything that society deemed important (face to face friendships)
