Have you found that it is harder for men or women to forgive?

When we study differences between men and women on reliable and valid scales of the degree to which they forgive, we tend to find no differences between men and women.  When we do interventions to help people to forgive, we tend to find that both men and women can go through the process of forgiving.  Yet, when we hold workshops, far more women than men attend.  Women, in this kind of case, seem to be more drawn to forgiveness or at least to attend meetings about it.
