In the constellation of outstanding novelists of the Victorian period, George Eliot stands out with distinctive intellectualism and bold handling of the feminist theme. She stands out with the courage to defend the dignity of women and their rightful place in Victorian society, defying the prejudice of time. Philosophical ideas that play an important role in the literary creativity of George Eliot do not belong to any authentic philosophical system, but are a kind of eclectic synthesis without permanent principles in the spirit of utilitarian materialism. In 1872 George Eliot published her masterpiece novel "Middlemarch," which Virginia Woolf called it "a magnificent book." The fictional title of the novel "Middlemarch" is quite struck because it includes the panorama of provincial life that connects several parallel events of the subject as a whole. In this novel, the events of several novels are woven and interwoven by the characters. The events of the novel take place on the threshold of the parliamentary reform of the year 1832. The events of this work speak about the situation and mood of different social layers during the electoral campaign. All the characters have a certain attitude towards the political and social events. All the characters in the book have certain positions in society, while men also have their professions.

Keywords: Women, rights, feminism, education, society, Victorian society.
