Today’s society negatively associates significant public figures with those who use toxic rhetoric when arguing pressing topics.

Pride and Prejudice: Then versus Now Pride and Prejudice written by Jane Austen in the early nineteenth century portrays the life of women and their attitudes toward marriage. Marriage, the major theme in the novel, is depicted as a way of social verification. The only way women could have a standing in their class was through their husband’s finances.
