Pride and Prejudice

Are the female characters in Pride and Prejudice examples of the new woman(one who is liberated in many respects)?

Or are these female characters simply fulfilling their roles as objects of desire, meant to do as men require of them?

Not all of them are. Elizabeth Bennet, however, fits the definition of a "new woman".
