As previously reported, Meryl has attended yesterday’s Women in the World Summit to pay tribute to activist Inez McCormack. Pictures from the event have been added to the image library. Scroll down for more information and video.


Meryl Streep wore mourning black as she spoke of Inez McCormack, the great Irish human-rights and peace activist who died of cancer just 10 weeks ago at the age of 69. “A tall woman and a towering figure,” Streep said. The magnitude of the loss mounted as Streep spoke of all McCormack had done. McCormack had ensured that human rights—and in particular the rights of the people she called “the invisibles”—became part of the 1998 Good Friday accord in Northern Ireland. McCormack had also become the first woman to head a trade union there. “Well, there’s no fun in being the first woman in anything,” Streep quoted McCormack saying. You can read more on Meryl’s speech over at The Daily Beast. A video of her speech has been added to the video archive.
