The climax of Little Women is more than likely the moment when Laurie proposes marriage to Jo, and still after all the vicissitudes that Jo went through found the courage to decline the marriage proposal. What this did was to instill in her a sense of self as a woman and as an independent person and was a move that nobody saw coming, maybe not even Jo.
