Fangirling over Jennifer Lawrence is a pretty routine for us, but she recently received some praise from way high up, and TBH, it has us pretty geeked. Odds are, J. Law's probably somewhere totally gushing over it, too.

After the Mockingjay star penned a spot-on essay about her personal experience with the gender wage gap, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to co-sign Jennifer's sentiments while praising the actress for having the courage to speak out.

"Brava, Jennifer," she wrote. "It's hard to speak up against inequity and risk being unpopular—but equal pay matters for us all."
Precisely, Jennifer. If there was ever a time for the actress to pat herself on the back, it would be now. We love her wit and ability to entertain, but Jennifer's willingness to tackle tough issues is a truly admirable example of #bossmoves, especially when she could easily rest on the fact that she's the highest paid actress in the world.

Despite the pressure to avoid rocking the boat, we're glad to see J. Law embracing her voice and showing the powers-that-be of Hollywood and ultimately, the world, that she's perfectly capable of using her platform to address issues that continue to plague women everywhere.
