The war on women has truly gotten out of hand. Republicans have gone out of their way to block equal pay, take away women’s rights to make decisions about their own healthcare, and push for women to return to their 1940 role of subservient housewife.
Unfortunately for the GOP, women aren’t taking it sitting down.
Sunday night’s Academy Awards bore a bright and shining moment for all women when Patricia Arquette delivered her acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Boyhood.
After the standard thank you, Arquette ended her speech with this:
To every woman who gave birth to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody’s equal rights. It is our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America.
Conservative bloggers and Fox news are most-likely running through miles of film at this very moment trying to find some dirt to discredit her. The meme machines are running wild.
Arquette’s comments aren’t news to those who follow politics. In a recent interview with The Guardian, Arquette talked about the revelations of the Sony hack, proving that women are every bit as talented and sought after, if not more so, than their male counterparts, yet “Jennifer (Lawrence) was paid less than the men?”
The script writers at Fox “News” are scrambling, you can be sure of it.
