Poster Cleverly Combats Sexual Assault By Urging Bar Patrons To ‘Ask For Angela’
By Sophia Hyder, 02 Nov 2016
The Lincolnshire County Council in England has come up with a clever way of quietly combating sexual assault.
A poster has been stuck up in a women’s restroom at a bar urging people who feel uncomfortable on dates to ask the bar for ‘Angela’. The name is a code word that lets the staff know that someone requires help. Whoever says the code word at the bar will then be escorted out of the premises safely or called a taxi.
The tweet that first publicized the image has been retweeted over 28,000 times.
The posters are part of a bigger campaign called #NoMore, which “aims to promote a culture change in relation to sexual violence and abuse, promote services in Lincolnshire and empower victims to make a decision on whether to report incidents”.
