Call the Midwife – Yusra Warsama playing a FGM victim in latest series

In the last series of Call The Midwife there was an episode where they tackled Female Genital Mutilation. I found parts of the episode disturbing, but it is something that women today are still tackling.

I am interested in body image and social norms to do with gender equality, how can a country where women do not have the right to choose how they control their sexual urges have equal rights. Men are no superior than women, and therefore women should get the same rights as mee, especially on their sexuality.
