“The future is female”

"The future is female” is a women’s rights saying that has been printed on many images. The feminist slogan has been cited in print since at least July 1975, when it was printed on T-shirts.

“The future is female and black” was posted on Twitter by Kenny Jules Morifi-Winslow on July 28, 2016. “‘The future is female’ and black and latinx and trans and queer and undocumented and ours” was posted on Twitter by “are you there, god? it’s me, bailey margaret” on November 13, 2016.


31 July 1975, News-Press (Fort Myers, FL), “Sagaris: ‘An Intellectual Hothouse Of Feminism,"pg. 1D, cols. 1-2,
LYNDONVILLE, VT. (AP)—(...) Earnest women carrying notebooks and tape recorders and wearing T-shirts with pictures of Susan B. Anthony and such slogans as “The Future Is Female” stretched out on classroom floors to listen to lectures.

20 April 1977, The Globe and Mail (Toronto, ON), “Big Apple still worth a bite” by Dick Beddoes, pg. 8, col. 1:
You can hold hands in a hansom cab drawn through Central Park by a plodding chestnut horse, or watch a gaggle of girls play softball, one of them wearing a baggy sweatshirt with a stencilled message across a glorious chest, The Future Is Female.

8 June 1977, Boston (MA) Globe, “T-shirts give you the last word” by Judy Foreman, pg. 54, col. 4:
Feminists, perhaps more than any other group, have gotten across messages literally close to their hearts with shirts like, “Adam was a rough draft,” “A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle,” “Sexism can be cured,” “Failure is impossible—Susan B. Anthony” and “The future is female.”
