How much fat should you intake a day?

I'm a woman, but I'd like facts for both genders.

I cannot say the exact number of grams of fat a person should intake, since it will vary depending on how many calories a person is eating. For example if a woman consumes 1800 calories per day, then she should eat about 60 grams fat per day.
