Sophia Bush sit down with Fox News to talk about her new show “Surveillance”

Sophia Bush opened up about sharing her experience of violence in a room full of men and why they dedicated themselves to speak out against “abuse” in spite of the impact it could have on her career.

Bush wrote a long Instagram post on Friday about the fact that a lawyer for the #MeToo movement and incidents that they had to endure during her career. They placed a poem by Nayyirah Waheed and screenshots of recent tweets and Instagram captions speak about her experiences and the support of the other women telling their stories.

“I will always tell, and I have always said that, the truth. Even when my voice shakes,” Bush wrote in her Instagram caption. “…If you have chosen not to listen to the frank, clear discussions that I have had on the subject of the past year, that’s on you. Your lack of attention — for me and for ALL the women who tell their stories in the emptiness — does not mean that we do not yell along.”

The actress vowed to continue to speak about her experiences.

“The grace that I’ve chosen to handle this, the deep learning I’ve done in the wake of my experience (shout out to the wonderful people of @onsiteworkshops) that I, as holy, and the responsibility for the provision of other women?” she wrote. “Do not forget that my” titanium spine, ” as my sister @hilarieburton calls it, was forged in the fire. I am not a woman that you will ever reduce. Not one iota. None of us are.”

Bush talked earlier about working in toxic environments, while they are on “One Tree Hill” and “Chicago P. D.” to Speak on Dax Shepard’s podcast “Armchair Expert,” Bush said that she was once assaulted in a room full of men, who refused to help her while working on the NBC drama.

“You lose your way when someone attacks you in a room full of people and everyone literally look away, looking at the floor, looks to the ceiling and you’re a woman in the room and every man who is twice the size not to do something. You go, ‘Oh, that was not worth defending? I’m not worth defending?'” Bush said earlier this month.

Bush also spoke about her time filming “One Tree Hill” by Mark Schwahn, who was accused last December of sexual harassment by more than 40 women.


The actress said her situation on the “One Tree Hill” set was different from the experience they endure on “Chicago P. D.”

“Our experience on ‘One Tree Hill’ was unpleasant, but our boss, who was a bad guy lived in L. A.,” Bush said. “Eighty percent of the time we were on the set of loving our experience of and with each other, and then he would come to the city, and it would have been like, ‘Watch out for f—ing Handsy-McHandsy there.” There was much that was inappropriate, but it was not all the time … it wasn’t the same.”

“It was fun, a man that we like, ‘Oh God, he’s back.’ And one was a consistent attack barrage of abusive behaviour,” she said about the difference between working on “One Tree Hill” and “Chicago P. D.”
