She’s never been shy to tell others what she thinks, “even as a child,” and Judge Judith Scheindlen isn’t holding back on what she says is keeping women back.
“I think that women for too long allowed other people define what their happiness and reasonable role should be,” said the host of the Judge Judy show.
Scheindlen took a page from her popular website, WhatWouldJudySay.com, to create her new book, ‘What Would Judy Say? Be The Hero Of Your Own Story.’
“In this book I want to have an honest conversation about what it really takes to get what you deserve out of life: how to define your worth and stick to it; how to find the courage to take risks–and how to build your backup plan; how to ignore the chattering classes and create your own destiny,” said Scheindlen.
The book, which is free, is downloadable on electronic devices at WhatWouldJudySay.com.
“If you have a forty year old unmarried daughter you go ugh, but if you have a 40 year old son who is dating around, you go, he’s having a good time,” said Scheindlen.
Her message to women is create a whole you before you let someone else define what you are. Start by establishing a way to earn a living and develop interests in music, art, dance, theater, etc.
“Women are so desperate to stay in a relationship to be defined,” said Scheindlen.
The wife, mother and grandmother is currently in the 19th season of her hit TV courtroom show on FOX.
