1. Thesis- For this project, I decided to write over the first topic choice of writing over a social movement. The social movement I will be writing over will cover the NWSA National Women’s Suffrage Association, whom they represented and advocated as a group, and the accomplishments and sacrifices that they faced. I will compare and evaluates several of Trodd’s “politics” such as connection, form appropriation, and memory to reveal how each contributed to the success of the movement and which yielded more results for the cause.

2. Body paragraph 1- The NWSA connects to politics of Connection, politics of Form, politics of Appropriation, and politics of Memory in a series of events that showed connection in the many protests and petitions that were made by the women’s suffrage. In many occasions when there is an unfortunate event or injustice that is where a group of people unify and connect to one another to fight with a purpose. In this section of writing in connection I will utilize some material from Now We Can Begin (p.187) where one of the most important feminist leader Crystal Eastman who from the early 1920’s played a major role in connecting a large group of women fighting with one purpose of equality and justice amongst men. Where she mentioned “that women should now dedicate their new political power… to riding the world of war,”. Eastman established a platform for many women to feel comfortable enough to go out in public to speak against the injustices they faced.

3. Body Paragraph 2- From politics of form I will cover most of this topic throughout Nineteenth Amendment and Equal Rights Amendments (p.185) where Susan B. Anthony one of the most important leaders of the Women’s Suffrage movement had a connection with Nineteenth Amendment by which they also referred to this Amendment as Anthony Amendment in her honor of her long fight for the right of women to vote. From Why Women Should Vote (p.175) in this passage politics is also found within when it is mentioned how women were only viewed very limited to homemakers. “For many generations it has been believed that woman’s place is within the walls of her own home”. Politics of form also will contain pieces of Now We Can Begin (p.187) where Crystal Eastman who was an influential leader for women but also a well-known writer, whom with her writing caused revolts and pushed women to believe in themselves in creating their own voice and expression. “With its out-dated assumption that all women have a common trade interest in the household arts”. Eastman shared her thoughts of the traditional women homemakers as an old worn out lifestyle.

4. Body Paragraph 3- Politics of Memory can be covered in the Nineteenth Amendment and Equal Rights Amendments (p.185) where a memorable life event occurred in the year of 1920, where women where given the right to vote which was also known as Susan B. Anthony Amendment. The Equal Rights Amendment (Lucretia Mott Amendment), where men and women were granted equal rights, and the New Equal Rights Amendment (Alice Paul Amendment) that gave equality of rights under law and could not be denied. From the 1920’s and so on were the years of new beginnings for many American women who were now able to become in one with the nation.

5. Body Paragraph 4 – Discuss all of the politics in a comparative analysis, engage in counterarguments and close evaluation of how each contributed more or less to the movement. I will reveal if one or more tactics were privileged or more effective and give evidence for why this was true using examples from the literature.

6. Conclusion- These years left great memorable historic moments in the political and justice world that could break old habits and opened America for a new progression. I will cover more into detail over these different topics of Politics throughout my essay.
