This Is What Happens When The Public Sees A Woman Abusing A Man

The video might change the way you see domestic violence.

1. DareLondon set up a hidden-camera experiment to see how strangers would react to seeing domestic abuse for ManKind’s #ViolenceIsViolence campaign.

2. A couple (portrayed by actors) in a London park get into a heated argument and things begin to get out of hand. The man begins to physically abuse his “girlfriend.”

3. Onlookers immediately notice and take action. One woman even walks up to the guy yelling, “What’s wrong with you?”

4. More women gather around, and even threaten to call the police.

5. Then the situation changes. The actors re-create the same scenario, except this time the woman is abusing the man.

6. This time, bystanders react a little differently…

7. No one even attempts to help the guy, and people seem more entertained than anything.

8. As the dispute carries on, the video reveals a rather surprising statistic:

The ManKind Initiative is dedicated to Support for Male Victims of Domestic Abuse, including running a national violence helpline. To learn more about the charity, check out its website.
