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."
