'British Sharia councils are leaving women open to abuse'
Islamic Sharia councils are discouraging women from going to the police in cases of domestic violence, a barrister has told the BBC.
Charlotte Proudman said that women are being left in "very vulnerable situations where they're open to further abuse and domestic violence".
The barrister's comments came in a BBC East Midlands programme which also heard from a Muslim woman who said a Sharia council took the side of her violent husband.
