Inscription.  
Answering a question about male and female equality in the workplace, Susan said, "It depends on what the activity is. As far as construction work and things of that nature go, men and women are physiologically different—fact is fact. Mentally, it depends on the person. I think that sex is really obsolete as a criterion when it comes to intelligence. It has been shown that girl children mature at a more rapid rate than do boys. On an adult basis, however I don't think that you could say that men are more intelligent than women or that women are more intelligent than men."
