I think we can officially re-title the 2015 Oscars the “Most Feminist Oscars Ever”, wouldn’t you agree? And we loved every minute of it. Here are three reasons why it was great.
1. Steve Carrell and Jake McDormand wore #HeForShe cufflinks:

2. #AskHerMore was a trending topic on Twitter and Facebook.

3. And we’ve saved the best for last. Patricia Arquette brought the house down with her acceptance speech. Seriously, even Meryl Streep and J.Lo freaked out, it was so fantastic. She is now our unofficial hero and Empress of Wage Equality.
Brava and bravo, people of the Oscars. Thanks for being awesome.
