She wrote mainly for young girls, championing conservative values, and purveying the message that a womans happiest place is in the home, which is the source of all goodness. This proved very popular among parents, and her books sold extremely well throughout her life. Whitney was a staunch opponent of womens suffrage, though took no part in public life (in accordance with the message of her books). Aside from her writing, she patented a set of alphabet blocks for children.
