Reese Witherspoon is a proud feminist, and she also understands there are some great guys helping us ladies in our quest for equality.

On Thursday, the 38-year-old actress celebrated two of her favorite fellas, hubby Jim Toth and their 2-year-old son Tennessee James Toth, by posting an adorable picture of the father-son duo to Facebook. She also thanked Jim specifically for being her biggest supporter and helping her to #LeanIn to accomplish her goals at work and at home.

"Every day, I'm so thankful to have this amazing man as my partner," she gushed. "I would not be where I am in this life if I didn't have his constant encouragement and complete support. He changes diapers, makes carpool runs and always has time to give me a much needed pep talk...(He makes a really good latte too!)"

She went on to explain that the Lean In organization "is asking us to celebrate the men in our lives who love, help, and support us daily!" She asked her friends and fans to get involved, too, writing, "Husband, dad, brother, grandpa—do you have an example of a man who you are thankful for? Either share a photo and tag it with the hashtag #LeanInTogether....or respond below. I want to see! ....(And don't they deserve it?!)"

With Jim in her corner, Reese is committed to bringing about positive, empowering changes for women in Hollywood. Per the Huffington Post, she actually revealed at an Oscar nominee luncheon that she started her own production company after seeing six of her favorite actresses "fighting over a really crappy role in a movie."

"We deserve better," she said. "It's great to speak up, but what I really think is you've got to do something."

"I set out with the idea that I wanted to develop material that has strong female leads," she said. "I wanted to make movies about what I want to put out into the world—put some good into the world."
