Sarah Sophie Flicker is a force of nature. She really does it all - she's a political activist, a performer, a director, an artist, and still has energy to be a glam mother to three gorgeous children with her husband, Jesse Peretz (a director of Lena Dunham's hit show GIRLS amongst others). On top of that, Flicker loves to trapeze while actively participating in her political advocacy groups. You can check her mad swinging skills out by heading to see her in  "The Citzens Band," a performance group she co-founded.  Recently, Sarah worked with Lizz Winstead and Lady Parts Justice to encourage women voters in the upcoming election. If you want to meet Sarah Sophie Flicker, (and really, you want to meet this woman!), look no further than the groovy stoop of her Brooklyn town house where she can be found hosting meetups to help get the VOTE out (like this weekend's "V to the Shining V" she is hosting with Lady Parts Justice. Sarah Sophie Flicker is encouraging all of us to ROCK ON and we are totally smitten.
