Speaker, journalist, director, media maven, 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, large breasts and inverted nipples, Murphy’s owns story resonates with many women, but even more so because she dares to speak it. 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 it to millions of viewers of all ages, races and sexes, which Murphy hopes will create a dialogue about breasts that goes beyond sex, breastfeeding, and cancer and will give women and girls a real chance at changing breast taboos and of healing.
A true agent for change and a channeler of histories and cultures, Murphy is one of those rare people who can transcend what most of us take for granted and lead people through ecstatic 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.
