A Story Of Snow And Inequality

With all the snow in the Northeast, many have grappled with how to get to and from work. Some, more than others. In this photo, a woman carries a toddler in Boston, Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2015. (Charles Krupa/AP)

Boston-area journalist Barbara Howard recently wrote an essay for Cognoscenti, the ideas and opinion page for WBUR in Boston, about an experience she had driving home from work at 1 a.m. after the latest blizzard. She stopped to pick up a young mom holding a sleeping toddler at a bus stop. She tells Here & Now’s Robin Young about that encounter, snow and inequality.
