The Ballingtons A Novel by Frances Squire. "The novel, a tale of love and relationships that dealt heavily with issues of finance and freedom, was well-received. Professor Zueblin of the University of Chicago’s sociology department once used it as a reference book, considering it the best handling, in fiction, of the economic dependence of women. In 1909, Potter left her position at the University of Minnesota and devoted herself to women’s suffrage. She returned to New York and joined the National American Woman Suffrage Association, working as the organization’s corresponding secretary. She became an activist for women’s and labor rights as a member of the Women’s Trade Union League, the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, and the Socialist Party. In 1911, she took up the cause of garment strikers in Chicago. She also continued working as a lecturer as a member of the staff of the University Lecturers’ Association." 445 pp.
