Both women are strong with strong personalities.  They are firmly in control of their choices in men and the ways in which they want to run their own lives.  Gwendolen escapes the dominance of her mother; both girls make perfect matches with the men they pursue and ultimately are perfectly matched with.  their "men."  Ultimately they show themselves to be moving away from the snobbishness of families like that of Lady Bracknell; Cecily shows that she can develop into her own person regardless of the fact that she has no real family background.
