Berlin, 08.03.2022 – Whether it’s salary negotiations or filling management positions – women are still often unequally treated today, in both private and professional contexts. The current figures are sobering: women make up 14.7% on the boards of Germany’s top 200 companies, 28.4% in management positions and only 26.3% of professors. Although a recent study by the Hans-Böckler-Foundation recently announced that women in Germany have tended to catch up in recent years and decades, the process is often very slow and there has even been stagnation in some positions. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2021, women worldwide cannot expect equal treatment in all fields for more than 133 years.
For this reason, MyPostcard, Germany’s most successful postcard app, and TERRE DES FEMMES, a non-profit human rights organization that stands up for the observance and implementation of women’s rights, are taking this year’s International Women’s Day as an opportunity to launch a postcard campaign for the fourth time to raise awareness for inequality in the rights of women.
Starting on March 8, 2022, postcards can be sent via MyPostcard for one month to encourage women worldwide to no longer accept inequality between men and women. For every postcard sent, MyPostcard will donate 1 euro to TERRE DES FEMMES and support the organization’s work for a self-determined, free and dignified life for all girls and women worldwide.

Christa Stolle, national director of TERRE DES FEMMES: “For more than 40 years now, TERRE DES FEMMES has been fighting for human rights of girls and women worldwide! MyPostcard has been a faithful partner in our rebellion for several years. We are very happy to celebrate another International Women’s Day with MyPostcard! Every girl and woman has the right to live equally, self-determined and free – we are rebels!”
“MyPostcard’s long-standing partnership with TERRE DES FEMMES is particularly close to our hearts and we are very proud to be able to support such an important issue as equal rights and equality with our campaigns. At the same time, we want to give all women the opportunity to raise their voices with our postcard campaign and contribute together with us to independent lives for girls and women worldwide “, says Oliver Kray, founder and CEO of MyPostcard.
#rebelwoman – postcards for change and transformation
This year’s #rebelwoman campaign by MyPostcard and TERRE DES FEMMES aims to call on women to fight for their dreams and goals, not to be satisfied with less than you’re entitled to, and to never let yourself be defeated. In the campaign video, women talk about adversity and challenges and how they’ve dealt with them. It also features celebrity supporters, such as former Germany’s Next Topmodel attendee Elena Carrière (model, actress and entrepreneur) and Fatou Diatta (rapper and activist).
