Keywords: feminism; women in literature;

Abstract: While feminism in Pride and Prejudice has been a subject for discussion for many decades, in this essay I aim to show how Elizabeth Bennet’s feminism is shown through the comparison with three secondary characters. This essay will examine the characters with the help of a narratological approach that shows what main trait the characters have and how this is used to explain them further concerning feminism and Elizabeth. The liberal feminist theory will explain how feminism was viewed in the nineteenth-century and how this reflects on the characters.
