Halacha - Omer
Submitted by Binyomin Rose  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Really women are not obligated to count the Omer at all because it is a mitzvas asei she'hazman garma, a time related positive commandment. Some also have the custom that women never make a bracha on sefiras haomer on the assumption that they will most probably forget a day, and also many authorities hold that women should never make a beracha on mitzvos asei she'hazman garma. However, a woman who does say sefira with a beracha would have the same halacha as a man and would stop saying the beracha if she completely missed one day.
