Of note however: Rose's independence begins much earlier in the film, as well as her agency. She claims in the end that Jack saved her, but really she saved herself. She sacrificed everything for a new life. Of course, Jack's influence cannot be denied. He can be credited for revealing her disposition toward independence and adventure, but Rose acts on it and sees it to fruition. Example: she had that diamond the entire time she was in New York. But she never cashed it in. She could have, no judgment, (girls gotta eat) but it makes a powerful feminist statement that she doesn't. She wasn't going to 'let Cal win' which she confesses in a deleted scene. Rather, she'd rely on her own strength and resourcefulness.
