Shaw satirizes the upper class in Pygmalion. From the opening to the end the entire purpose of his work is to prove that "anyone" can be a lady, and that money does not make you a lady. Our main characters work towards one goal, the metamorphis of Eliza, and in the end she was really perfect all along. The caterpillar was already a butterfly; she just needed grow.
