Patricia Arquette responds to accusations of "white feminism" on Twitter

After being criticized earlier today, Patricia went on Twitter to defend her comments.

- Patricia Arquette was criticized earlier for her media room comments, where she commanded gay people & people of color to fight for women: "And it’s time for all the women in America and all the men that love women, and all the gay people, and all the people of color that we’ve all fought for to fight for us now."

- Following the criticism, she tweeted, "Guess which women are the most negatively effected in wage inequality? Women of color. #Equalpay for ALL women. Women stand together in this. If you are fighting against #Equalpay you are fighting for ALL women and especially women of color to make less money than men. Wage equality will help ALL women of all races in America. It will also help their children and society."

- She also tweeted: "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?"
