It also leads to the rejection of Darcy, which is cruelly based on a false claim made by Wickham. Because of her prejudice, she is held up on the opinion that Wickham is the one that should be trusted. She refuses to hear anything contradictory to her own opinion. When Jane doubts the credibility of Wickham's allegations toward Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth's pride prevents her to consider Jane’s predispositions.

Chaucer also uses satire in a more comical way to illustrate how women can’t keep a secret. The Wife of Bath reveals this trait when she says “by heaven, we women can’t conceal a thing” (Chaucer 341), mocking the suggestion that women have an inability to keep a secret.
