This study aims to analyze the self-portrait of women in the novel Emma by Jane Austen. In this study, the writer discusses two problems; 1) description of the main character and 2) problems shown as women stereotypes in the novel. This study applies the objective theory and the sociology of literature approach to analyze the problems shown by women stereotypes. In addition to supporting this research, the writer also adds sociological theory to make it easier for the writer to analyze women's stereotypes in marriage life. The result of this study shows that Emma Woodhouse is the protagonist. She is a beautiful, smart, and wealthy young woman. In the novel, Emma's character portrays the stereotypical image of women in Victorian times, such as women stereotypes being presented in two social classes: women in marriage and society. Stereotypes are presented in two social classes, upper class and middle class. Emma Woodhouse represents upper-class people, and Jane Fairfax represents middle-class people. Upper-class people look down on middle-class people. Emma thinks that Jane, who is from the middle class, is dependent. In marriage life, women in the Victorian era considered marriage a stereotype in finding a partner with a higher class than them. Social relationships are divided into 1) going around and visiting and 2) ball parties and dinner. This relationship is part of upper-class activities and is not intended for lower-class people.
