The original “The Future Is Female” design was made for Labyris Books, the first women’s bookstore in New York City, which was opened in 1972 by Jane Lurie and Marizel Rios. In 1975, photographer Liza Cowan took an iconic picture of musician Alix Dobkin, her girlfriend at the time, wearing it.
The slogan has lasted through the decades and is reemerging as an empowering statement for all, as female-identified bodies and rights remain under attack. Like Otherwild, we believe in an inclusive, expanded, and fluid notion of gender expression, identities, and feminisms. We support liberation, embrace our trans sisters, and call for the end of patriarchal ideology, domination, oppression, and violence. We believe that “The Future is Female” is the past, the present, and the future.
This 11 in. x 5 in. print is designed by Otherwild and letterpressed by Bullhorn Press.
