February 24: Meryl Streep also spoke at the annual WIF event. Her words, however, were impromptu. No doubt referring to her recent Golden Globes speech
, the award-darling joked, “I feel like never saying anything again... Everyone is speaking up and that’s great because with numbers they can’t ignore us!”
The moment happened when WIF President Cathy Schulman (pictured center) called Meryl and, fellow Oscar nominee, Ava DuVernay to the stage.
