Getting people to look up from their phones is a tall order, but putting a flyer on the back of a bathroom stall is still a good way grab people’s attention. A bar in England is using that space to let women in on a code word they can tell bartenders to get help out of uncomfortable situations.
The sign, which was seen in a bar in Lincolnshire, is generating tons of attention on Twitter:
The ad is part of a campaign to end sexual violence and abuse, but it encourages women to ask bartenders for Angela even in situations where they feel safe but uncomfortable and could use some help.
We realize there’s a difference between your Tinder date missing the hint that you’re not interested and feeling like you’re in serious danger. Still, giving women an option to escape situations where they don’t feel comfortable is important. Here’s hoping this catches on at American bars soon!
