8 March is International Women's Day - a world day that was first celebrated in 1911. In Berlin, this date is already considered an official holiday. To celebrate this special day, ALPINOLS is donating part of the proceeds to the women's rights organisation TERRE DES FEMMES.
We at ALPINOLS want to get involved in International Women's Day and donate part of our revenue to a good cause. Therefore, we share 10 per cent of our turnover, which we achieve in our online shop from 08.03. to 13.03.2022, with the non-profit organisation TERRE DES FEMMES.
What is International Women's Day?
International Women's Day has existed for more than 100 years. The day was created to promote equality between the sexes and to introduce the right to vote for women. It was also intended to strengthen the emancipation of women workers. This year the motto is: "Change is female".
Why TERRE DES FEMMES?
TERRE DES FEMMES - Menschenrechte für die Frau e.V. (Human Rights for Women) is an internationally active organisation headquartered in Berlin that specifically promotes the protection, rights and concerns of women. The donation-based organisation was founded with the registration of a non-profit association in 1981 in Hamburg.
The international organisation is divided into city and university groups and is represented in numerous cities of different countries in German-speaking countries. In addition, TERRE DES FEMMES supports self-governing women's rights projects around the globe.
TRERRE DES FEMMES focuses on genital mutilation, domestic and sexual violence, violence in the name of honour, trafficking in women and prostitution, equality and integration, reproductive rights and international cooperation.
The ALPINOLS team is pleased to be able to support the work of TERRE DES FEMMES with its financial contribution.
