Lucrare de licenta despre Women in Richardson, Defoe and Jane Austen writings
In the next chapter I decided to write about the women characters from the 18th century novels. I chose to focus on Defoe's Moll Flanders, Richardson's Pamela and Jane Austen's Emma. They all three are different, their social ranks and possibilities in life were different, but each of them was fighting for their happiness. They were somehow independent, and sometimes dependent, but their life depended only on themselves and they had done all in order not to become victims of a story with an unhappy ending.

Moll Flanders renders her introspective self-consciousness as a means of separation from actuality. Moll acquires a greater ease and learns rather quickly the tricks of self-preservation and plausible self-invention, defining herself as someone who learns quickly to analyze social possibility in generalized terms and to situate herself accordingly.

Moll surveys the sexual field after her second husband leaves her: "They, I observe, insult us mightily, with telling us of the Number of Women; that the Wars and the Sea, and Trade, and other Incidents have carried the Men so much away, that there is no proportion between the Number of the Sexes; and therefore the Women have the Disadvantage; but I am far from granting that the number of the Women is so great, or the number of the Men so small".
