‘Ask for Angela’: How a Bar Poster is Cleverly Fighting Sex Abuse

UNITED KINGDOM -- When women find themselves in dangerous situations it can sometimes be difficult for them to find a way out but a campaign taking place across the pond called "No More" is looking to change that.

A county council in England started hanging these posters in women's restrooms at local bars.

It urges women who feel like they're in an unsafe situation, for instance on a date, to go to the bar and ask for “Angela." The bar staff will be aware of the code phrase and will arrange a taxi to get them out of the bar safely and discreetly.

As of now, it's not clear if this campaign will eventually be implemented here in the States. But this is definitely a situation in which we can learn from our worldwide neighbors.
