Zoomer actress Patricia Arquette says there has been a somewhat positive response to her call for pay equality during her Oscar acceptance speech earlier this year…
Arquette says when she looked at the data she realized it revealed the wage disparity was not exclusive to actresses but revealed a great disparity in other areas impacting female editors and sound mixers among others.
The 47 year old says shortly after her Oscar rant, a sound editor told her that her boss had offered her a hefty raise, not realizing she’d been paid much less than her male counterparts for a long time.
