    These findings again emphasize the need for a simple test for the presence of premenstrual tension. Unfortunately, the severity and type of symptom may vary from month to month and symptoms increase at times of stress, thereby adding to the difficulties of diagnosis. Premenstrual tension responds to treatment, but such treatment would need to be continued after the expiration of the prison sentence if any improvement in criminal tendency is to be expected; this suggests the need for such women being placed on probation subject to regular medical supervision. Summary An investigation carried out in a women 's prison revealed that almost half the women committed their crime during menstruation or the premenstruum. Premenstrual tension appears to be an important factor, and 63% of the sufferers committed their crime at the time of their symptoms. I wish to thank the Governor and members of the Prison Medical Service for their co-operation and helpful suggestions. This paper is published with permission of the Prison Commission though it does not necessarily represent…

  • Adrienne Bashista Speech

    The speaker Adrienne Bashista gave a very insightful speech about what Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is and how it is caused. Before our speaker told us about her son, I had very little knowledge about what FASD was.

    In 2012, a survey assessing children born in 2004 discovered that 1 in 68 children had been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (CDC).

  • Analysis Of The Film Freaks

    One of the most callous attributes of the American society over the past two centuries would be the mistreatment and judgment of “freaks” or people with disabilities. While this cruel treatment and hatred for disabled people has almost entirely vanished, it used to be a very common social norm as these freaks were treated as second-class citizens.
