What makes a woman complete? In 1847 a woman was looked upon as the property of the man. She could not vote, she could not choose her own husband, and all other sorts of things, that we as women take for granted nowadays – things that at that time were completely unthinkable are obvious rights today. How can you see the meaning in your life if you don't have any influence on it?
‘From childhood to independence' is one of the main themes in the novel Jane Eyre. As a child Jane grew up as an orphan so she had to live with her aunt and her two cousins. Her aunt had no love left for Jane and Jane was therefore sent away to a charity school for young girls - Lowood. This school had a very harsh regime and Jane experienced loneliness. Jane's only friend, Hellen Burns, died while she was still a young schoolgirl, and once again Jane was left alone.
