Kind of an odd question, but here we go!

My committee chair has informed me that my list of Victorian primary sources has to change and have a different theme, so I've chosen to focus it more on gender. However, there are a few major authors out there where I haven't read enough of their work to decide which book would work best.

Can anyone tell me which novel of Dickens's they perceive as having the most to do with gender? Currently, my candidate for that list is Bleak House, which has a female narrator- part of the time- and mother/daughter themes, but that's mainly because, other than that, I've only read A Tale of Two Cities.

Likewise, I have read zero Trollope novels. Based on what some friends who took a course in his work this semester are saying, I'm thinking I'll go with The Eustace Diamonds, since I know a female character plays a strong role in that. If you have a favorite where the gender themes are stronger, though, could you recommend it here, please?

Thank you in advance!
