Meryl Streep talks to the 2010 graduates of Barnard.

As I was driving home this evening I was listening to "On Point" and they featured part of Ms. Streep's address to the 2010 Barnard graduating class.

It's just over 28 minutes.

I particularly found it interesting when she talks about how men's attitudes to her characters have changed, where they can see through Miranda Priestly's eyes. (approx. 24 mins. in.)

Also? I'll have to search to see if there's a youtube copy of her Vassar speech (27 yrs. ago) or a transcript someplace.
