Barbara Walters is leaving the camera after a 50-year career. Alicia Menendez took the opportunity to reflect on Walters' legacy and the status of women in journalism. According to a 2013 study by Media Matters for America, women make up only 38 percent of U.S. newsroom staffers. What's worse is the number has stagnated over the past 14 years.
