The problem of women's emancipation is extremely important in the literature. One of the writers, for the first time sharply raised the question of the situation of women; in the European literature was George Sand. For the first time, she links the woman's personal freedom with the general problem of social emancipation. George Sand's view of the position of a woman in society allows her to come to the conclusion that during the times of antiquity and the Renaissance the woman held a more honorable position.
The moral world Bronte denied and now the existing order of things, in which the moral impoverishment of man, aggressive money-grubbing, spiritual exploitation of the individual, psychological and material enslavement by society are considered the norm and regularity. This denial is their covenant to the future. "Life is a struggle, and we all have to fight," Charlotte Bronte proclaimed her motto in the close and cold walls of the Haworthian house, and she was heard all over the world. The whole life of the Bronte sisters was a relentless struggle of the spirit, not only suffering, but having withstood in the struggle and managed to melt down the world's achievements in a creative victory.
Bronte's theme of women's equality with men in the world of feelings and thoughts can be traced in the novels of contemporary English writers, for example, Margaret Drabble and Doris Lessing. In our opinion, however, the heroines of both Drabble and Lassing are still trying to prove to themselves and others the emotional, human, psychological significance of their feminine "nature" - something that Jane Eyre, Catherine Earnshaw, Agnes Gray and Lucy Snow, not speaking in particular about Charlotte Bronte, who perfectly understood the dependence of individual freedom - and lack of freedom - on women from "fundamental" social causes, which sometimes ignore contemporary novelists who regard the problem of women's equality from the position of the eternal "struggle of the sexes".
Speaking of the English tradition of the embodiment of the famous Bronte’s heroine, one cannot help mentioning her literary "reminiscence", like John Fowles' Sarah Woodruff, who defies conventionalism; daring to love against the bourgeois Victorian conventions. With her passion, self-will, an amazing fusion with nature in the broadest sense of the word - and with the nature of passions, and with the wild, abandoned wasteland that Sarah chooses for her solitary walks.
