The Future is Female T-Shirt


Wear the future with this classic slogan celebrating the feminine.

SKU: N/A Category:


The original “The Future Is Female” T-shirt 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.

We are excited to partner with Otherwild, who remade this amazing tee (also now a sweatshirt) after discovering it on t_o_r_y/

The t-shirt’s 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.

Available as black with white text. Printed on a 100% cotton unisex t-shirt. See the sizing chart in our photos for details.

Made in the USA.

    This shirt definitely makes a statement and I love that. The quality of the fabric and construction is really nice. And, I really like the fit.
