A man beat his wife while their daughter stood beside them and cried in a street in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. And despite efforts from passersby to deter the man, who suspected his wife had an affair, he continued beating her.
A passerby recorded the video and posted it online, which has started a heated discussion on Chinese social media.
Many netizens praised the passersby for trying to stop the man. Others believed the man’s act would affect his young child psychologically. Also, some netizens suggested the man should be put in prison for family abuse.
Nearly 25% of Chinese women have suffered violence in their marriage, according to the All-China Women’s Federation (ACWF). China’s first anti-domestic violence law, which took effect on March 1, is seen as an important step to protect the rights of women.
