“I am a good writer, so I write my own stories,” said Betty Broderick, a longtime columnist for The Times who has written for The Post, The New York Post and other publications.
“And I’m going to tell my own story, too.”
Broderick’s story is called “The Good News Is, I Have To Go to the Bathroom.”
It’s a reflection on her husband’s sudden illness and death.
It chronicles how the couple found themselves in a new and unexpected place together, living in the same house.
The story ends with a kiss.
It is not the only one to tell this story, nor the first.
In 2015, the Times published the story of a former student who wrote a story about her time in the military and her relationship with her former commanding officer.
In an interview, Broderik said she felt a responsibility to tell her story to her readers.
It was not a decision she had made lightly, but she was trying to do something for her family and her community, she said.
I want to make sure that I don’t have any stigma, that I can be part of a dialogue about what it means to be a woman, she told The Associated Press.
“I think it is something that we can all contribute to.”
The story is based on a memoir by Brodericky, who was a staff writer for The New Yorker.
She said she chose the title because it’s the name of her own daughter, who is now 16.
She told The Post that she thought the title might resonate with younger readers.
In 2016, the newspaper published the book “The Way Things Work,” by Michelle Alexander, a former National Security Agency analyst who wrote that the United States is “living through a kind of post-9/11 moment” when many Americans are struggling with the trauma of being “sold into slavery.”
“It’s a really important story, and I think that is the kind of thing that will inspire a lot of other women,” she told the AP.
“It is about power and responsibility and equality and the kind that women are given, and the way that the world has been structured and the ways that women have been excluded from power, and how that is changing, and what it will take to make that change happen.”
Brodaick is one of a growing number of women who are taking their stories of military service to their communities and creating work that speaks to women who served, even when they weren’t women in uniform.
In the past, women who participated in military-related work often received no support or recognition from their employers, and some often had to live with the consequences of their actions for years afterward.
The New York Times has launched a campaign to encourage female military personnel to share their stories with the public.
This week, the paper announced that it would be publishing “The Girl Who Died on the Battlefield” by Mary McLeod, a Canadian-born female Army soldier who died during the Iraq War in 2003.
In 2017, The Post published the tale of a woman who died in an elevator after the door opened and an elevator worker jumped out to help her.
The woman’s husband was killed, and his body was left on a ledge.
Broderrick’s story, she says, reminds people that people are not always the most benevolent.
“It really speaks to that idea that we are all not always doing what we say we’re doing,” she said of the kiss.
“You’re just as human as anyone else.
