Caroline Criado-Perez fought to get Jane Austen on British bank notes, and she succeeded, and was hit with an outpouring of violent misogyny - including rape and death threats - online. Outbursts like this are increasingly common for women on social media, but it's not entirely clear how they can best be stopped.
Jane Austen's 'one darling child' Pride and Prejudice was published 200 years ago and the BBC's David Sillito has been finding out how the novel has endured for so long.
The Bank of England has shown sense and some sensibility after revealing Jane Austen could become the new face of the 10 note.
A ring that belonged to Jane Austen will stay in the UK after a museum raised the money to compete with US singer Kelly Clarkson.
Colin Firth starred in a BBC series of Jane Austen's beloved novel, 'Pride and Prejudice,' back in 1995. For the book's 200th anniversary this year, the TV network has taken the opportunity to immortalize a particular scene: A moment where Firth as Mr. Darcy emerges from a lake. So the BBC went ahead and created a 12-foot-tall glass sculpture of his likeness and stuck it in the middle of a lake.
Many say Jane Austen was ahead of her time - writing books which have sold in their millions. The 19th century author of 'Pride and Prejudice' has now been recognised in a fitting way - she'll be the new face on a British 10 pound note. She'll replace Charles Darwin - making her the only female historic figure to appear on the current currency. That omission hadn't gone unnoticed.
Kelly Clarkson has been prevented by the British government from taking a beloved turquoise and gold ring that belonged to Jane Austen out of the country. The 'American Idol' winner and singer purchased the national treasure last year for more than $200,000 (USD), more than five times what auction house Sotheby's expected it to sell for. But an export bar was put on the ring so that a British buyer could potentially step up, by Sept. 30, and keep it in the United Kingdom.
