The scope of possible legal problems involved in the existence of this physical and mental dysfunction caused by premenstrual is very wide. For the sake of brevity the writer would like to separate the discussions of criminal and civil responsibility, and make this initial study one which is specifically limited to the civil rights and liabilities of women involved in automobile accidents. It is emphasized that the effects of premenstrual tension in torts are not as clearly pertinent as they are in crimes. But they are pertinent.
