Jane Eyre suggests men and women are not so different after all

In chapter 12, Jane thinks to herself that "women feel just as men feel." Presumably, had she said this out loud, everyone would have been like, "WHAT. WHAT ARE YOU. WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN. MEN AND… AND WOMEN? THE SAME? NO. THIS CANNOT BE. A WOMAN IS JUST A BUNCH OF FERAL CATS IN A CORSET AND IF THEY’RE NOT, I DON’T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT IT."

About the Author
Elodie

In real life, she goes by the name Courtney Gorter. This is a closely guarded secret, and you're the only one who knows about it, so be cool. You can follow her on Twitter or check out her website if you want, but it's just going to be a lot of complaining.
