She Flew the Coop (SFTC) is a rapidly growing movement founded by Sarah Batista. SFTC empowers women and girls of all ages and backgrounds to get out of their comfort zones by going after their dreams! By harnessing the power of storytelling, SFTC inspires a think “outside her box” method to discover purpose and personal fulfillment.


Everyone has a story. Boldly share yours.


What began as a documentary in 2015 featuring the stories of women who “flew the coop”, quickly evolved into a movement that includes an original song on iTunes, live events, a Meetup group, monthly panel discussions, workshops and short videos.


SFTC aims to become a multimedia brand that will inspire and educate women and girls around the globe to dream bigger, embrace positive change and celebrate each other! We are taking our live SFTC show on the road to multiple cities in 2017!
