The plots of Austen's novels explore women's dependence on marriage in the pursuit of favorable social status and economic security. Her protagonists are strong and brilliant women, such as Elizabeth Bennet, Anne Elliot, and Emma Woodhouse. Despite the social restrictions of her time, Austen created characters who defied gender roles.

Her use of biting irony, along with her realism, humor, and social commentary, have long earned her acclaim from critics, scholars, and popular audiences. Her themes have universal relevance, as do her characters, who represent a number of archetypes and social dynamics that, in some cases, still persist in contemporary society.

In addition to her literary legacy, Jane Austen is still very much present today through the numerous film adaptations of her work, such as the 1995 and 2005 adaptations of Pride and Prejudice or the 1996 and 2020 adaptations of Emma. This has allowed her work to reach new generations and different social contexts.
