Women should feel free to count the omer as an act of voluntary mitzva performance. Ramban even maintained that it is obligatory for women, and halachic sources as early as the seventeenth century attest to women having the custom of counting. While Mishna Berura does cite a view that discourages women from counting, Aruch Ha-shulchan, as well as more recent authorities, are more encouraging.
