Expert Answer:

While many of women novelists described the domestic life of women, sometimes writers wrote about female characters who broke the established norms of society and acted reblliously. 'Jane Eyre', written by Charlotte Bronte and published in 1847, the title character is shown to have an independent and assertive disposition. Instead of being quiet and well behaved as was expected of girls in those times, Jane is bluntly expressive in the face of traditional hypocrisy. She speaks her mind and doesn't mince her words even with elders. In this sense, Jane Eyre is different from the stereotype of girls even in this age and time.
