Casualty features female genital mutilation in episodes
by Declan Harvey and Jonathan Blake
Casualty has become the first mainstream drama on British TV to feature a story about female genital mutilation.
It's a practice used in some cultures for hygiene reasons or to make sure the woman is faithful to a future husband.
It was made illegal in Britain almost 30 years ago.
