A county council in Lincolnshire, England has come up with a clever and discreet way of combating sexual violence and abuse.

A photo posted to Twitter shows a poster in the women's bathroom at a bar in Lincolnshire that advises anyone who is feeling unsafe on a date to ask the bar staff for "Angela" - a code word alerting the staff that someone is in need of help.

The poster reads:

"Are you on a date that isn't working out? Is your Tinder or POF date not who they said they were on their profile? Do you feel like you're not in a safe situation? Does it all feel a bit weird? If you go to the bar and ask for 'Angela,' the bar staff will know you need help getting out of your situation and will call you a taxi or help you out discreetly—without too much fuss."

The idea of being helped discreetly is the most compelling part about the campaign. Fear of causing a scene or being wrong can be paralyzing for people in an unnerving situation.
