Violence against women is a social problem worldwide. It affects one third of all women in every social and economic class, every religion and ethnicity. Italian video journalist Luca Lavarone conducted a social experiment. He filmed as he spoke with young Italian boys and asked them questions about their age and what they wanted to be when they grow up. Then, Lavarone introduced them to a young girl named Martina and asked them what they thought of her. They all responded with sweet compliments. Next, the boys were asked to caress her and they all responded with nervous giggles and then reached out to give her a gentle touch on her arm and cheek. The final request was to slap Martina as hard as they could. Watch how they respond.
