She lived in a world that deliberate the probability of her prosperity by the level of her marriage capacity, this incorporated her familial associations, financial status and magnificence. Jane however is a vagrant with no fortune, and over and over is portrayed by her creator as ugly, yet she can break with the traditions of her age.

They by and large keep running on a similar topic – romance; and guarantee to end in a similar disaster – marriage".

While Little Women revolved around four girls, and Pride and Prejudice around five, the characters were both from poor, modest, family-oriented families. Although both families were poor, they portrayed the image of happiness and acceptance. While this is an important theme to understand; it is overused. Louisa may have played with the plot a bit; for instance, instead of showing the poor that money wasn’t everything, she could’ve showed the rich that money wasn’t everything (for most of the time they are the conceited).
[She] worked her first six years when there was work, or [she] sent her home and to his relatives” (Olsen 28). The narrator did the best she could to raise her daughter. All she wants for Emily is to “only help her to believe-- help make it so there is cause for her to believe that she is more than this dress on the ironing board, helpless before the iron” (Olsen 29). Emily didn’t have the same advantages as the other children, which is why “she compares Emily 's good behavior to the stubborn demands of the younger children in the family” (Werlock 1).

Domesticity provided the opportunity for wives to offer more nurturing and attention to their children.
Felicia, Mrs. Shelby was a strong and intelligent character in "Uncle Tom's Cabin" she does rules her household based off her beliefs and morals and the book shows her husband accepting her rule.

You don't know anything about business, I tell you"(Stowe, 372).
She has gotten the house of her dreams, the son she raised, and strong minded family all revealing that this dream isn't as dead as we first presumed. Now the reason many probably thought this dream was lost was because of the 1950s belief of the American dream shrouded Lena in falsehood and doubt that the old ways won't work. Mrs Lena Younger comes off as a strong well spoken housekeeper, but when it comes to providing for her family she is shown to appear reliant on her husbands insurance
Not only was education considered somewhat of a restriction for some women in the 19th century, power wasn 't one of the women 's strongest suits. Women were expected to be domestic house wives who were supposed to be loyal and subservient to their husband. As you can see, in a relationship the male was more dominant than the female.
