Women. This has a clear scientific basis- honesty is linked to the prefrontal cortex of the brain, and tests show that those individuals who have lower levels of brain activity in their prefrontal cortexes are less capable of being honest. It is well-established that the brain’s dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is important for exerting control over automatic impulses, including control over the automatic impulse to compulsively lie whenever it’s advantageous for you to lie.
This region of the brain keeps us honest. And men in general have far higher levels of brain activity concentrated in this region of the brain, the prefrontal cortex, which governs male thought processes; whereas females have a far wider and more even distribution of brain activity through the rest of the brain, particularly in the limbic system, meaning that emotional impulses- including the impulse to lie- govern female thought processes to a far greater extent.2

I think women lie more because from personal experience guys can be more "brutally" honest.3
