Patricia Arquette responds to outcry over Oscars remarks (Mashable)

From Mashable,

On Sunday evening Patricia Arquette celebrated her Oscars win with a stirring speech that called for equal pay and equal rights for women.
But by Monday morning, Arquette seemed less of a hero as Twitter began dissecting the controversial comments she made backstage.

It’s not clear if Arquette would have phrased her thoughts differently given more time and less pressure, and Mashable could not immediately reach her for comment. By late Monday morning, Arquette began tweeting seemingly in defense of her remarks.

Guess which women are the most negatively effected in wage inequality? Women of color. #Equalpay for ALL women. Women stand together in this

I have long been an advocate for the rights of the #LBGT community. The question is why aren’t you an advocate for equality for ALL women?

Wage equality will help ALL women of all races in America. It will also help their children and society.
