    I just wondered what level you are writing at? I know that at GCSE the sexual ambiguity of Jekyll isn’t discussed openly so you may not be aware of theories in this area, but some sections of the story that relate (or allude to) Jekylls sexuality may not make sense for a female protagonist. Through a careful reading it is possible to conclude that Jekyll and Hyde’s wrong doings are of a sexual nature.Linking to the above, perhaps you could discuss the ambiguity created by the lack of female characters in the story (think about the females that are present, they seem to be weak and passive) and how this would affect the rest of the story if the central character was female – what bits of the story wouldn’t work? In the Victorian period, women were meant to be a good moral influence on men – could the lack of female influence in Jekyll’s life have affected his behaviour (would the presence of a woman have stopped the events occuring?). If the protagonist was female then surely this would be more subversive (and controversal for the time it was written) as women were meant to be the “angel of the house” and should do no wrong. Also, would it be realistic for a female to be conducting the kinds of experiments with science that Jekyll performs?Do you think it would be believable for a woman to be as violent as Hyde is – for example, trampling a young child on the street?I hope this helps you out!

    I think if you were going to change the gender of the protagonist, you would have a very different book. The author would have to make more changes than that. When all is said and done, it might be even more effective.
