Hardy's attitudes about class

I am struck by Hardy's respect for the working class--emphasizing that Tess's emotions and concerns are equally important and deep as a Angel Clare's, for example. He treats women well, too.
Sorry I am not documenting this impression, but I wanted to throw out the idea in case it struck any of you, also.
