Sharpley-Whiting's end discussion of what Francophone writers were saying during the nineteenth century is important because it is a call for interested scholars to do more work in revealing the "diversity of black female subjectivities rather than monolithic, homogenizing constructions of black femaleness." This discussion adds to Sharpley-Whiting's study in that it challenges the monolithic caricatures of black women and suggests that black women and their bodies be further complicated in literature and film to reflect the diversity that exists outside these artistic venues.
