And yet I cannot be with him, it makes me so nervous” (Gilman 312).

Eleanor got married, 1905, and the certain liberation she had achieved took a step back, making her rather shy again. Eleanor and FDR had 6 children, forcing her to take on the duties and responsibilities of a wife and mother and to follow the expectations society held for women in the 1920s. She was influenced by Roosevelt 's mother, Sara Ann Delano, in whose house they lived, where Delano was the dominating woman in the household.

The unexpected change eventually made Eleanor a stronger woman that Souvestre wanted her to be, with a more outspoken personality, while Franklin Roosevelt became much more vulnerable, and more
Written in 1847, Jane Eyre (by Charlotte Bronte) tells the story of a young woman with harsh upbringings, who then becomes a governess for a wealthy family in the English countryside and begins a complicated romantic relationship with Mr. Rochester, a resident of the manor. Today this novel is considered a classic of the Victorian era, but at the time the book was considered extremely controversial since it explored unconventional theories of religion, fate and free will through the eyes of the title character. Jane’s life largely mirrors that of Bronte, whether it was the death of family members, their strict schooling, or even the unusual love found in strange scenarios.

As she explained to her sisters, Bronte wanted a character “as plain and as small as [herself]”.
