Finer Women Don't Haze

On September 6, 2012, “Finer Women Don’t Haze (FWDH) Campaign” was launched as the sorority’s response to this “call to action against hazing.” It also honored the sorority’s principle of Finer Womanhood. The goal of Finer Women Don’t Haze Campaign, (FWDH) was and continues to initiate discussion, recognize the issue(s), and bring attention and awareness to the hidden harm (psychological, emotional, financial, abusive, embarrassment, physical dangers, even death) and silence of hazing.
