“Ask for Angela” Posters
Sexual assault is a terrible problem and bars and pubs are one of the main places where women can get into dangerous situation that leads them into trouble. Aware of this, The Lincolnshire County Council in England has come up with a clever way to help out women who might be stuck in a situation they don’t know how to get out from. The solution is a poster that has been stuck up in the 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.
We think this is a smart idea and one that should be implemented in every establishment. How about you? Do you have any other ideas to help combat this terrible problem? Share your thoughts on the comments below!
