Yoko Ono Calls On Women to Tell Their Personal Testimonies of Harm

Yoko Ono Calls On Women to Tell Their Personal Testimonies of Harm

Cutting to the chase, Yoko Ono's back — and with several new projects in the works.

One of which will have her musical groupies roaring in excitement. We're not kidding, even Rolling Stone says it's true. And in case you haven't heard the big news, Ono has officially partnered with the "Secretly Canadian label to reissue [her] entire musical output from 1968 to 1985" that will be released on November 11.

But, as if this was not enough of a treat, she has another project up her peaceful sleeve — a feat that will have you, like Secretly Canadian, teaming up with Ono for an ongoing project featuring photos of women's eyes with personal, written testimonies of their stories below.


In her call to action, Ono asks women of all ages from all around the world to "send a testament of harm done to you for being a woman" in any language.

Interested in participating? Here's how:
1. Take a picture of your eyes and write a testimony (be however open you are comfortable).
2. Sign the testimony with only your first name.
3. Send your photo and testimony via email to arising@reykjavik.is any time between October 7, 2016 and February 5, 2017 (exhibit dates).
4. Your submission will be exhibited in Ono's "Arising" installation at the Reykjavík Art Museum.
5. Share the Facebook event with friends to spread the word.
