Of the 1/3 of adolescent girls in developing nations who are married before the age of 18, only 23% use contraceptives, due in large part to the stigma attached to contraceptive use and pressure from their partners. Girls under the age of 15 are five times more likely to die during childbirth than women in their 20s.
