Visualising Sex Worker Advocates’ Evidence on Violence

This project was developed and implemented while working as a staff for Tactical Technology Collective. This inititiative involved working with two sex-worker collectives in India and Cambodia to explore how community-based organisations can use data and evidence in their advocacy. This two-and-a-half year project was a collaboration between Durbar Mahila Samanwaya Committee(DMSC) in Calcutta, India, and the Women’s Network for Unity (WNU) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  After both organisations conducted detailed questionnaires about the violence sex workers had experienced, visualisations of the data were created.  For DMSC, six visualisations were produced, each designed to grab the attention of a particular stakeholder, such as the police, policy makers and parliamentarians.  Visualisations are currently being developed for WNU.  Read more on the Tactical Technology Collective’s Website
