Travelling to three countries, Kenya, Israel and India – Kate Humble is on a journey to discover the roles of marvellous women and the duties expected of them as wives.
Tonight Kate is in Kenya in the district of Kuria where there is a complex relationship between a husband and a wife with the women often having wives of their own.
Kate also meets victims of FGM which is still practised in the area and is enforced by the village elders. She teams up with the police who are on a mission to capture those performing the violent crime.
