Duchamp on women of the USA

The American woman is the most intelligent woman in the world today- the only one that always knows what she wants, and therefore always gets it. Not only has she the intelligence but a wonderful beauty of line is hers possessed by no other woman of any race at the present time.

And this wonderful intelligence...is helping the tendency of the world to completely equalize the sexes, and the constant battle between them in which we have wasted our best energies in the past will cease.

( p 151- 2 from Duchamp A Biography by Calvin Tomkins)
