Director, producer, writer, and alternative health advocate, Meagan Murphy defies cultural norms with her passionate out-of-the-box approach to solving feminine health issues. The Breast Archives is a stunning and timely example of her passion and dedication to empowering women through the body.
Plagued with a negative breast image herself, due to a case of early pubescence and large breasts, Murphy’s story resonates with both women and the men who love them. Through The Breast Archives, she is able to harness the revelatory power of breast storytelling, create a safe space for women to talk about their breasts, and up the ante by bringing honest stories about a needlessly taboo body part to viewers of all ages around the globe. Murphy hopes to create a dialogue about breasts that goes beyond sex, breast cancer and nursing, and give women and girls a real chance at changing breast taboos.
A true agent for change and an impassioned student of history and world cultures, Murphy is one of those rare people who can transcend what most of us take for granted and lead people through euphoric moments of growth.
Her work for women’s health issues has won her a Communicators Award, a Blue Cross/Blue Shield Medical Journalism Fellowship, and she was a Time Inc. Health Education Freddie Award Finalist. Murphy has written and produced documentaries and branded content for clients and media outlets, most recently with PBS, since 1994. She is a member of Women in Film & Video/New England, eWomen Network, and Independent Documentary Association.
