Meredith Sociologist in Situation Room Analysis

Meredith College Associate Professor of Sociology Lori Brown was interviewed by for an analysis called “What the Situation Room Photo Reveals About Us.”
The article analyzes the photo of President Barack Obama and national security officials including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during the May 1, 2011, operation to capture Osama bin Laden.

Brown was quoted discussing Clinton’s show of emotion in the photo.

"Women are often more physical in their emotional responses and in a 'power situation' it may not seem as acceptable, but times are changing and the Situation Room needs to change, too. Her emotions were more obvious, but I am sure many of the men in the room felt the same way she did."
