Tonight that jury is made up entirely of women. Why did both sides want this? Matt gutman in florida on the case from the start. Reporter: Tonight sworn in to decide george zimmerman's fate. Experts say a jury box filled with only women is highly unusual. Women can generally be more emotional, more sympathetic and that generally in this case would favor the prosecution. Reporter: Who is the victim in this case? Zimmerman says he shot trayvon martin in self-defense. Experts tell us that women are more detail oriented and tend to ask more questions. Of the six women in the jury, five are white. But there's diversity in their opinion. My husband has a nine millimeter. A glock or something like that? Tell me what you have. A .38 and a couple of rifles. I don't know what they are. Reporter: There are three women who either have guns or have family members who do. One is a victim of domestic violence and the one minority in the case seems to support the right to self-defense. Everybody is entitled to that. Reporter:16 months after trayvon martin was shot that trial is slated to begin on monday morning. Those jurors were told they could be sequestered up to four weeks.
