As she has in previous years, Meryl attended the Women in the World Summit on Wednesday evening in New York. She happened to be interviewed by Jon Stewart as a member of a panel which included filmmakers Ava DuVernay and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.
Most of you know that on this blog I usually stick to topics pertaining to Meryl's screen work. I have, however, been known to dabble in covering her participation in any number of good causes. Last night I was able to catch part of the original streaming of this interview, and right before the discussion began, they showed Streep's performance in her upcoming film Suffragette. The clip they showed looked to be the entirety of Meryl's performance, but unfortunately it is not included in the clip below. Regardless, more pearls of wisdom from our girl, coming off the heels of her personally funding a screenwriting lab for women over 40.
