#NoMore. Ask for Angela

This one is from the last year (2016), but I think it is a wonderful action that must “break” time’s barrier.

One of the most vexed, increasing and persistent problems around the world is abuse. Fear paralyzes people in such situations, and they or we are afraid to ask for help openly. An effective method was invented in one of the bars in Lincolnshire in England. At the ladies room the staff have placed a poster that advises everyone who felt in danger at a meeting or a date at this coffee go to the bar and ask for “Angela”, a simple code-word campaign that can save a life. With this phrase the staff of the bar will hereby be alerted to the fact that the visitor needs help. Then quietly and without fuss ordered a taxi and show out to the person of the facility.

“Ask Angela” is only a part of large-scale propaganda campaign #NoMore, which is aimed for cultural changes in regard to sexual abuse and violence in society. The campaign also aims to empower victims of violence, and increase the number of decisions not to be afraid and inform about the incident at the proper authorities.

Together we can combat abuse and cruelty.
