Women's Rights National Historic Park
Audrey DeAngelis grew up mainly in Williamsburg, Virginia. She learned from her mother, a historian, to love history and to appreciate figures of the past as fundamentally human. Although she has worked professionally as an archaeologist, it was during her years working at Colonial Williamsburg that she discovered her passion for living history, reviving underrepresented voices, and sharing the complications and contradictions of the past with the public. She is particularly interested in the ways in which law and politics reflect (or don’t) the realities of life in a community, and how language can obscure rather than illuminate intent. Audrey is excited to work this year with the volunteers of the Women’s Rights National Historical Park to share the complexities of such an important narrative.
