A heartwarming new video has proven once again that older doesn’t necessarily mean wiser.
An Italian video journalist called Luca Lavarone conducted a social experiment with children on a busy street, to highlight the issue of violence by men against women.
In the three-minute clip, several boys aged between six and eleven years old are introduced to a girl and asked to pay her a compliment, caress her, pull a funny face to make her laugh… and then they are told to slap her.
The participants react to the final request with shock and appear visibly upset, but their responses as to why they won’t go through with the task are the real tearjerker.
