My experience in my American dialect is that there are a paucity of good friendship words that sound right when applied to women.
Your question would be improved, if you edited it to include this. If that is too general or formal, you'll need to provide a cultural context; buddy is specific to some groups, and not used in others. " Between two people that are dating, it's a little easier. That is also a word more common for males, but consider the term pen-pal; it can be gender-neutral.
I would call male and female friends 'friends', and specify 'female' if I needed to. I prefer not to make gender the centre of every interaction; I would go as far as avoiding the female diminutive names for professions like 'actress' where it is optional, because it accepts and reinforces an unnecessary social division. Something similar are terms of endearment like "baby", "sweetheart", but you'd want to be careful to avoid those if it's not your intent. And than can also be offensive depending on the person and the circumstance. However, "pal" is rarely used in any positive sense today.
Not because I am a feminist or anything, I simply feel those words express my character - and that matters more to me than concern with the appropriateness of the context.
Naturally though, I wouldn't speak to polite company so colloquially.
"Girlfriends" can be used, but obviously that's ambiguous, and the default expectation, if no extra context is added, would be that a single girlfriend is a romantic partner, not just a friend.
But if a woman said "I'm going to the movies with my girlfriends", that would read as being a group of friends, not a polyamorous group.The word "buddy" is a little archaic and was used in a time when males wouldn't have commonly referenced to females in the same way.when speaking to all of my friends, male and female alike.A small percentage of chicks (less than 1%) that hatch may be too weak or otherwise unfit to survive the first few days after hatching, and it is the responsibility of hatchery staff to identify these and euthanise them at the hatchery so that they do not suffer.
