Women of Substance: The Aspect of Education, Career and Female Identity in Pride and Prejudice and Bridget Jones's Diary
Dalarna University, School of Languages and Media Studies, English.
2009 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

Although two hundred years separate Jane Austen and Helen Fielding and, subsequently, also their portrayals of society, the similarities outweigh the differences. When juxtaposing Pride and Prejudice and Bridget Jones’s Diary in the light of feminism it is evident that both books provide clear examples of the prevailing situation of women in each time and place. The aspects of the study, which are especially important today, show both the development and some degree of stagnation of women’s rights and identities.
