In southern Bangladesh, the average girl is married by age 15, drops out of school, and has her first child by 16. This puts both mother and baby at far greater risk of death in a region where maternal and newborn mortality are already high. She has no voice in these decisions. Her parents, husband, and in-laws decide. What happens when you give a girl a voice?
