Commitee of 100 Protest, 18 February 1961

Bridget took these photographs during The Committee of 100's (British anti-war group set up in 1960) first act of civil disobedience - a sit-down demonstration at the Ministry of Defence in Whitehall, London, to coincide with the expected arrival of USS Proteus on the River Clyde. Between 1,000 and 6,000 people took part.

The first photograph is iconic as it shows the Nobel Peace Prize winner and Co-Founder of the Committee of 100 Bertrand Russell sitting on the floor in protest, next to the other Founder Reverend Michael Scott. The image captures the spirit of the times and an important moment in history.

Woman's Own - Undiscovered Beauties

These photographs were taken for Woman's Own in the 1960s - one of the most famous UK magazines devoted to women set up in 1932 - where Bridget was asked to find beautiful women - undiscovered beauties - from the real world and photograph them for the magazine.
