How The Public Reacts When They See A Woman Beating Up A Man

40% of domestic violence in the United Kingdom are against men. It's almost on equal footing with those committed against women. However, there seems to be a huge gap when it comes to the public's perception of domestic violence. When the public sees a man beating up a woman, they immediately go for the rescue. But when the cards are turned and the one doing the beating is a woman, the public reaction is almost the opposite.

The ManKind Initiative, a domestic violence charity based in the United Kingdom has come up with an eye-opening advert for its #ViolenceIsViolence campaign which directly highlights this huge gap. As a man commenting on the advert which was posted on YouTube puts it: "Fact of life: man beating a woman - crime, woman beating a man - comedy."
