Abstract

This project researched collective organisations formed by sex workers in Kerala, focussing on aspects including: - Why the organisations formed
- How they maintained their membership
- How they were funded
- Whether the workers were trained
- Achievements of the organisations
- Future plans of the organisation

Interviewees were identified by a contact in Kerala with advisory responsibility for the sex worker collectives. The contact wrote letters to the collectives and helped the researcher identify a selection of sex workers to interview. Three of the identified sex workers were interviewed. The interviews were audiotaped and then transcribed by the researcher.
Participants belonged to a vulnerable, marginalised part of Indian society.

Three word document transcripts of interviews, typed up from audiotape originals. Microsoft Word for the interview transcripts. Some of the background/accompanying documentation was handwritten.
