Dominican women are fighting against child marriage and teen pregnancy in a country where abortion is criminalized. Activists like Marcia González are working to provide comprehensive sex education and empower young girls through programs like teenage clubs. These clubs aim to educate adolescents about sexual and reproductive rights, self-esteem, gender violence, and other important topics. Access to contraception remains a challenge, with close to 30% of adolescents lacking access. Poverty levels contribute to the risks of unplanned pregnancies, and child marriage is still prevalent despite laws prohibiting it. The clubs provide a support system for girls and help them navigate these challenges.
