Barbara Walters: Profiled by MAKERS


In this amazing clip from MAKERS, Barbara Walters speaks of breaking not just the glass ceiling—but the steel ceiling. It’s hard to imagine Barbara Walters as anything other than successful and confident. Seeing Walters speak about her challenges, tears, and lack of confidence—attributes that seem so foreign to today’s Barbara Walters—puts the feminist movement in perspective.
