In my opinion, Austen does a great job portraying the women of the era. This doesn't, however, mean that in many cases she hasn't exaggerated traits and flaws. Elizabeth might be seen as the epitome of strength, and her mother as the epitome of foolishness. Because of this, many of Austen's characters can be seen as caricatures, which makes for a great story.
