Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to enlighten certain aspects of women's struggle for equality and independence in the nineteenth century. This purpose is achieved by examining three specific literary texts, namely Shirley and Villette by Charlotte Brontë, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë. The subject for analysis is: are the main female characters in the Brontë sisters’ novels struggling for equality and independence, or not? This essay proves that the protagonists in these three novels are very strong and brave, and that they are striving for independence and equality in society.
