According to the San Francisco Globe, a social experiment which involved having a male harass and abuse a female in public, followed by the reverse scenario – a woman harassing and abusing a male, has caused quite a stir.

Whilst people rushed to help the woman being abused in the experiment, incredibly no one helped when the tables were turned – some bystanders even laughed and took photos as the man in question was being abused.

We also just did a search on YouTube for more experiments like this and we found another, this time created by a men’s domestic abuse shelter. We have added it below.
