The Ask for Angela campaign is a discreet way to get help in a bar or pub if a date is going wrong. It aims to prevent situations of vulnerability and potential sexual assaults.
If you find yourself in a state of unease or you feel unsafe, you can approach the bar and ask for Angela. A bar member will recognise the name as a code for assistance and will discreetly help you to safety by either calling you a cab or walking you to your car.
The campaign first emerged in Lincolnshire and has since gone viral as a means of discreet & subtle help. Angela is a play on Angel, acting as a guardian angel in potential dangerous situations. If you find yourself in an uncomfortable position, remember to ask for Angela.
