This code word will help you when you feel unsafe on a date

Rachel Thompson writes, "A new sexual violence awareness campaign has created a code word for people who feel in danger in a bar. 

The 'Ask for Angela' initiative, which forms part of Lincolnshire county council's recent #NoMore sexual violence and abuse campaign, introduced a new code word for people to use in situations where they felt unsafe. 

A poster from the campaign which outlined the tool has gone viral, with more than 21,000 retweets and 28,000 likes. Many have called for the initiative to be rolled out nationwide. 

'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?' reads the poster."
