In our lecture on Wednesday, I participated in Professor Blum’s twitter challenge by tweeting this photo of Patricia Arquette at the Oscars. In her speech, Arquette called to action to create equal wage pay for men AND women. Women still make about 75 cents to every dollar a man makes today. Although I fully respect Arquette for using her Oscar acceptance speech to shed light on an important economic inequality, she is a highly paid, A-list actress and has no idea what it is like to be a woman working 3 jobs just to provide for her family and still making less than her male coworkers.
Also shoutout to Professor Blum for picking me as the winner of his twitter challenge and for Titanic on VHS
