Terms of Reference: Consultant to Develop Animation Video(s) to Advance Sex Workers’ Rights


The Count Me In! (CMI!) consortium is a partnership led by Mama Cash, including the Red Umbrella Fund (RUF) together with the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID), CREA, Just Associates (JASS), the Urgent Action Fund1 with the Dutch gender platform WO=MEN as a strategic partner for lobbying and advocacy. The joint initiative seeks to support and invest in the autonomy and capacity of women, girls and trans people to act for the prevention and elimination of gender-based violence (GBV), for economic justice, and for sustainable resourcing of women’s rights and women-led organisations and movements.


Purpose of Consultancy

Based on a vast amount of available research and materials about sex workers’ rights, CMI! consolidated the most relevant information to use to promote sex workers’ rights as human rights and an understanding of sex work as work to develop 7 factsheets on crucial aspects of sex worker rights – law, funding, migration, trafficking, violence, women’s rights, and COVID impact. CMI is now looking to create an animation video(s) based on these to translate the content in a catchy and informative audio- visual format. This will be a part of many materials developed on sex worker rights that will build a visible, public social media campaign to highlight feminist approaches to sex workers’ rights. The consultant will develop and design campaign materials to be used by CMI! Members and our broader community of partners to respond to efforts to claw back sex workers’ rights (such as the recent campaign hosted by the governments of Sweden and France and mobilization by other anti-sex workers’ rights donors), and pro-actively promote a rights affirming feminist approach to sex work. The materials will be designed specifically to: strengthen alliances and support within feminist and allied movements, educate and encourage funders to fund sex workers’ rights and activism, and to support the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs to continue funding and speaking out in support of sex workers’ rights.

The campaign materials will be informed by existing evidence, amplifying sex workers' stories and good practices, and making strong and relevant (to the specific audience) arguments to advance sex workers rights.
