In Bangladesh, corruption and a backlog in the justice system are forcing people in villages to use local courts to settle their disputes.
They are legal and chaired by an elected member of the village but none of them have formal legal training and some do not even know how to read and write.
But local courts are hugely tilted against women who come to seek justice for domestic disputes.
