Protect your personal information online

The Women's Information Service has developed a guide and checklist to help protect a person's privacy.

Ask for Angela: say no more to sexual violence. On a date that isn’t working out? Feel like you’re not in a safe situation? Go to the bar and ask for Angela for discreet help.

Ask for Angela is an international campaign being introduced in South Australia to promote safety in licensed venues.

For: women on a date, and/or with someone in a licensed venue like a pub or club.

Services: If you feel unsafe at a licensed venue that is displaying Ask for Angela campaign material, you can discreetly ask the staff for ‘Angela’. This simple code word alerts venue staff that you require assistance. The staff can then help you appropriately and respectfully.

You can give us feedback about your experience using Ask for Angela using our online form, or contact the venue.

Read more on the Ask for Angela campaign and see our campaign material.
