"One motto, one badge, one bond, and singleness of heart!"   -  AOII has no insignia or crest, but uses our badge as our symbol to the outside world. The founders reasoned that the Fraternity should adhere to ancient Greek ideals, and not Medieval ones of crests, shields, and other symbols.

Our goal is to be the most forward thinking organization, addressing issues relevant to women and society. "
