Hot Moms

Agency Network: 
March 2012

The Problem: Ammar is a non-profit organisation dedicated to protect the rights and the health of women working in Argentina's sex industry. The only problem is that in Argentina there's no law to regulate their work.

The Solution: Knowing the fact that the 93% of sexual workers are also mothers, we used the typical cads used by them to illegally advertise themselves on the streets to show that sexual workers deserve to have the same rights as anyone else.

Direct advertisment created by Ogilvy, Argentina for Ammar, within the category: Public Interest, NGO.

nice idea/execution, but are potential 'clients' the best lobby group for the cause?

I would like to see the foldouts better as single visuals. Does anyone have a link to those?

'93% of sex workers are mother' - amazing insight to base your campaign on. But I feel that it would have been even more effective if the creative had been reversed. Pictures of motherhood instead of prostitution. It would have drawn the right audience and brought the right emotion in them to start believing in the need to accept and regulate their work.
