We have talked alot about the root causes of violence, unequal power relationships between men and women, rigid gender roles and the tolerance of violence in our society, so how do we shift cultures? Ultimately we want to challenge our communities to reject all types of violence while at the same time expecting that all people will be treated with respect and equality in their relationships.
Friends to help us, we’d like your opinion about what you would do? The following video is a staged social experiment, portraying male-on-female scenarios of domestic violence before unsuspecting onlookers. Even though the violence is staged, be advised that some of this video is disturbing.
Your input is critically important and will help shape our violence prevention work moving forward.
