In Jane Austen’s novel Emma we are introduced to Emma Woodhouse. This young spirited girl always says what is on her mind. Although she is slightly spoiled, she still shines through as a good female role model. The way that Emma does this is by telling people what is on her mind. She is compassionate to the poor when it is looked down on and she lacks discipline but is willing to learn. Throughout the novel, Emma tends to get in a bit of trouble, in the end she makes a difference in the lives of those around her. Such as when she talks her friend, Harriet, out of getting married to a man who she does not love or assisting her neighbor Jane in learning more about her beautiful music talent. Emma takes time to learn about others before judging and through that becomes a wonderful female role model for girls of future generations.
