Sophia Bush talks about feminism, abortion rights, & more

Highlights from the video:

-Talks about feeling most beautiful when talking about things she is passionate about, not about how she looks on the outside.
-She realized she wanted to be an activist when she realized what education does for young girls. Still gets told to "stay in her lane" because she is an actress.
-Says she is scared by the current political race. Thinks people are talking about it like it's a reality show. (14:45)
-Doesn't like that people put Hillary Clinton "in a box" by continuing to address her as the potential first female president
-Enjoys watching her and Bernie duke it out - makes people engage in conversation
-Discusses abortion & the old world attitude that has resurfaced. Also says it's distracting us from other issues "that actually matter in this country." Wants to get back to things that were not already decided 40 years ago. (17:17)
-Was angered by the topic of penis sizes being brought up at the GOP debate. Says usually you see that type of questioning in the athletic world where men's bodies are brought up more often and newscasters think it's appropriate to "sexualize men in the same way they sexualize women everywhere" (19:15)
-Mentions what it means to her to be a feminist - "It's so not complicated... I watch everybody fight over whether it's appropriate to be a feminist or not. And I sit here thinking, well, I'm a woman. I would like to be judged on the quality of my work, I would like to be compensated fairly for my work. I would like to have just as much access to healthcare as any man. Yeah, that's pretty much it. I don't know what the big fight is all about." (20:30)

What do you think about Sophia's interview, ONTD? Should she "stay in her lane" or does she have some valid points?
