We, the Brothers of Epsilon Chapter, want to combat the disappointing narrative that Black men don't respect, protect, or even love their women. In fact, the men of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity feel like we could never do enough to praise and honor them for all that they do for us and for the world.

As such, we are proud to introduce our Woman of the Month Series!

Every month, we will recognize the accomplishments of a woman (or women) serving the New York City community in a different professional field. We'll present her with a certificate and do a short interview with her.

We know that this is just a small token of our endless gratitude, but we hope to be an example for all men everywhere, constantly searching for and acknowledging the women around us.
