The Women Effect: a Billion Women are about to Transform the Global Economy

8534694257_1047baa181_b

Justice under Trees: #2 Who owns legality?

As an Advocacy Project Peace Fellow working with Vikalp Women's Group in Gujarat, India, I finally attended my first Women's Court session this week. 

I have been struggling with the question of legality:  what makes these women’s courts/Nari Adalats (NA) legal? What makes their decision enforceable? From where do they derive authority?
