This women’s commencement keynote by Meryl Streep was given to the graduates of Barnard University, and includes many anecdotes.

In the speech, the iconic actress addresses the all-female Barnard class of 2010. Speaking to her personal experiences “faking it” as a more refined and subdued version of herself, she goes on to explain the value in being yourself. Because the audience for the speech is uniformly female, she speaks to issues of gender and how they have changed over the years. Reminding the audience of how fortunate they are to live in a time when their skills and accomplishments are valued, her speech is a humble and relaxed reflection on the current state of women in power.

Personal, but incredibly relevant to the audience, this women’s commencement keynote is as brilliant as one might expect from Meryl Streep.
