Not all women are damsels in distress who require the help of men to save them, especially when the attacker is also a woman. Had they intervened, public perception would likely view them as 'chauvinists', 'neanderthals', 'woman beaters' et cetera. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
As far as passers-by go, it's typically not a very bright idea to go rushing into a fight without knowing the situation. That and the fact that some people tend to mind their own business.
