When we talk about domestic violence, the first image that flashes in the head is of a woman being beaten up by a man at home. This video might change the way you see domestic violence.
In a staged prank, a hidden camera recorded the reactions of public when a man openly gets into a heated argument and physically abuses her. The onlookers quickly come to the rescue, threatening to hand the man over to the police. A little while later, the situation changes and the woman starts beating the man in full public view. The people around the couple giggle, and watch in amusement as the woman continues to attack the man.
The video has been shot by Mankind Initiative, which supports male victims of domestic abuse. It is shocking but 40% of domestic violence is suffered by men in UK. The campaign #ViolenceIsViolence aims to spread awareness about this discrimination against men.
