In chapter 3, Janie is at the point of the book where she has all of her choices made for her. Nanny is picking who Janie gets to date, in this case, Logan. Janie does not have autonomy at all because regardless of Janie's feedback, Nanny still keeps them together.
In this part of the story, Janie is here trying to help out Joe Starks but her voice does still not seem to be heard. Joe is not feeling well and as Janie tries to tell him that not going to the doctor's is going to make it worse, her autonomy is not high so of course, nobody listens to Janie. (chapter 8)
In chapter 19, after Tea Cake who played a big role in Janie's life, dies, Janie has a hard time getting back on her feet but with the amount of independence she was able to get with Tea Cake, she had autonomy to talk to God and make her own choices on how to save herself. As you can tell, Janie's autonomy progresses from the beginning of the book to the end.
