Sophia Bush was thrust into the spotlight barely in her 20s when she joined the cast of the TV drama One Tree Hill. Having recently walked away from her powerhouse leading role on Chicago PD, she's now stepping into a new one: A production and development deal with 20th Century Fox AND her power as a bold voice and activist for women, reproductive rights, sexual assault, and other critical issues like speaking out against trolls and making social media a safer place to engage and express opinion while driving change in a big way...something Sophia Bush was born to do.
