Would you report domestic violence?
A social experiment carried out in Johannesburg has found that local residents appeared far more concerned about the noise of drums than they were about possible domestic violence.
The research showed that the neighbourhood was immediately up in arms during a vigorous drumming session, but when a recording of what appeared to be a physically violent fight between a couple was played, not a single person spoke out.
The experiment was carried out by POWA - a South African support group for victims of domestic violence in conjunction with an advertising agency. A video of the experiment has been posted on You Tube.
What would you do? Intervene or mind your own business? Is what goes on behind closed doors a private matter? Have you ever been in this situation? What did you do?
