Oscar acceptance speeches can be really inspiring as well! Patricia Arquette who won Best Supporting actress for her performance in Boyhood gave a wonderful and inspiring speech that deserves a salute from all the women in the industry.
Patricia dedicated the award to the women who "gave birth to every citizen and taxpayer of this nation." She said in her acceptance speech,"To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer of this nation. It's our time to have wage equality once and for all in the United States of America."
"We have fought for everybody else's equal rights. It's our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America," Arquette added.
