Kate Humble examines the lives of women in other countries.

This three-part series sees Kate Humble travel to Kenya, Israel and India to spend time with communities that have very strict rules about the role of women.

Kate begins in Kenya with the Kuria people, who mainly live in small rural villages.

They believe in polygamy, so the men have multiple wives, but there is also a tradition called nyumba mboke, which is woman-to-woman marriage.

This opening episode takes a much darker turn, however, when Kate starts to question another Kuria tradition – female genital mutilation, or FGM.

The practice was made illegal in 2011, but Kate discovers that it is still everywhere in Kuria society.

This is a tough watch, but brilliantly made and presented by Kate, who is clearly deeply moved by what she witnesses.

Not showing in Wales.
