Sex worker voices
From 2010 to 2012, Tactical Tech worked with two sex-worker collectives to explore how community-based organisations can use data and evidence in their advocacy:
- the Calcutta-based Durbar Mahila Samanwaya Committee (DMSC) (a forum of 65,000 sex workers campaigning for the rights of sex workers), and
- the Women's Network for Unity (WNU) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Our collaboration with the DMSC in Calcutta involved a series of field visits and workshops, which resulted in the DMSC doing some focused data collection and. later, a series of visualisations which communicated this data.
