There is a gender dimension to the trade whereby women and girls are disproportionately affected by armed gender-based violence.

Compromise is absolutely a critical part of healthy, happy relationships.. But compromise is a mutual decision between two or more people. Compromise is NOT one person giving up everything while the other person gives up nothing. "The compromise effect basically emerges in any pair when there is a woman.
