Zonta Advocacy - Taking Action To Raise Awareness and Educate
A county council in England has come up with a clever and discreet way of combatting sexual violence and abuse.
A photo posted to Twitter (and retweeted almost 30,000 times) 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 copy reads: "Are you on a date that isn't working out? Is your Tinder or POF [Plenty of Fish] date not who they said they were on their profile? Do you feel like you're not in a safe situation? Does it allfeel 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."
Last month, Driftseed, co-founder Sophia Kruz gave a TEDxUofM talk to a sold-out audience on her new documentary Little Stones, and the power of art and culture to empower women and girls around the world.
Today, we're thrilled to share the link to watch her talk on Youtube, and hope you share it with friends, family, and colleagues who believe in seeking creative, outside the box solutions to the world's biggest challenges: Click here to learn more
