If a Man Took Advantage of a Drunken Girl, Would You Speak Up?

"I think women definitely have a stronger reaction to someone taking advantage of them because they probably all have been there themselves," said relationship expert Donna Barnes. "Maybe no one was there when it happened to us, so it's then empowering to be there for somebody else."

A Different Look for Our Actress

As a twist in our experiment, we decided to replace Jessica, our innocent "party girl" with Ashley, another actress who was dressed more provocatively; a variable we thought might provoke a different reaction.

Bystanders still seemed concerned and were willing to keep Ashley out of harm's way no matter the risk.

"She doesn't want to go with you," a bystander named Cindy told the aggressive stranger. "Give me your phone and let's call [friend] Amber."

But there were differences, especially when the bystanders were young men. What unfolded may surprise you.

Find out what happens on "What Would You Do?" Friday May 7 at 9 p.m. ET.
