She was told and shown, so often, how vile it was that she finally believed it; he made her believe it. An ordinary, beautiful, admired woman was dispossessed of her own self-worth by the man whom she was married to. He abused her into hating her birthmark. Georgiana would of not died on that day if Aylmer had not caused her to hate something she once appreciated about
She exclaims to her sister, “Shout it from the rooftops. I’ll hate you all the more for silence – tell the world!” (4. 4-5), thus she is fully aware of the anarchy she is committing, however, she has too much dignity to accept the consequences. Nonetheless, her pride tends to take over, and when interrogated by Creon she admits to her actions, but refuses to apologize for her treasonous acts. Antigone, much like Creon,
Elizabeth had suspected John of the affair which is the reason she fired Abigail from working in their house. However her suspicions resurface once women in the town begin being accused of witchcraft. This is because John confesses to Elizabeth of the conversation between him and Abigail and states that all the accusations from Abigail are a fraud. Elizabeth, although angry that John was alone with Abigail, she tells John that he must go to court with this knowledge. John tells her that he will think on it but he shows that he has no intentions of doing so.

In the late 1960s, discovering that "sisterhood is powerful," women from Vancouver to Halifax began forming groups. The Vancouver Women 's Caucus was organized in 1968 and published The Pedestal from 1969 to 1973. The Montréal Women 's Liberation Movement was founded in 1969, the Front de libération des femmes du Québec published a feminist manifesto in 1970, and the Centre des femmes edited the first French-language radical feminist periodical, Québécoises deboutte! (1971-75). At first, some were consciousness-raising groups, but others quickly turned to concrete action, providing abortion services, health centres, feminist magazines, militant theatre, day-care, shelters for battered women and rape crisis centres, and organizing for equal pay.
It’s arguable that Jane was a dedicated feminist, who consistently fought against the boundaries and norms social existence at the time and that she rebelled against being overpowered by men. However, many events in the novel do emphasise how Jane can be vulnerable when she is outside the safekeeping of a man, as is shown when she leaves Rochester. Jane battles against the constraints of Victorian society but contradicts her own battles when she marries Rochester, as he becomes vulnerable from blindness. In conclusion, Jane Eyre was a woman with strong feminist beliefs and principals, yet it becomes clear that Jane’s own mind is not completely outside the constraints of society as she succumbs to love and marries Mr. Rochester and in doing so, becomes a heroine of romantic sorts. It is arguable even that this is a deliberate feature by Charotte Brontë to show the power men possess over women.
