When people hear Jane Austen they’re thinking, love and romance. In her novel Pride and Prejudice, Austen tells a story of a wealthy man, Mr. Darcy, holding a high status, falling in love with Elizabeth who is born into a family that is less fortunate, and less educated. A lot like Jane Austen herself, Elizabeth does not behave the way ladies in that time period were expected to. Her character is an outspoken, well-read, confident and challenging woman. Elizabeth is always testing the status quo. Today, Austen is considered a rockstar for empowered women.
