She praised journalists for their bravery at the Committee to Protect Journalists' 27th annual global press freedom awards, telling the audience she did "know something about real terror". "We do recognize the special cocktail of venom and ridicule which is always tinged with sexual threat that's served up online for women-any woman in any profession-that stands up to tell the truth".
Meryl Streep has spoken out about two times in her life she has faced the "real terror" of physical violence, once as a witness and the other as the victim.

In one instance, I played dead and waited until the blows stopped, watching, like people say you do, from about 50 feet above from where I was beaten.. "And in the second instance, someone else was being abused and I just went completely nuts and went after this man". She recalled how Cher was also present, and the thug went away: "It was a miracle".
Streep did not elaborate further or say when these violent acts happened, but as People notes, she and Cher worked together in the 1983 drama Silkwood and Cher once said they rescued someone from a "large mugger" in New York City.
The Devil Wears Prada star, 68, added that she was "changed by these events on a cellular level because women do know something particular about coming to the danger place".
