dc.description.abstract Gender can have a huge effect on the recollection of events when trying to remember a scene as a witness. This paper studies the differences in recollection of events based on gender differences. My sample consists of one hundred participants which are divided equally (50 male participants and 50 female participants). They were asked to complete a survey after watching a video of a man that was walking behind a woman in a street after dark. The survey included questions related to what the participant recalls from the video such as details of the street as well as details of the stranger. Females scored higher on questions related to personal and physical characteristics of the stranger rather than the scene or environment itself. However, males scored the opposite with higher scores on recalling the environment and scene rather than physical characteristics of the stranger. en_US
