The Future is Female Neoprene Sweatshirt
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. This slogan has lasted through the decades and is reemerging as an empowering statement for all, as female-identified bodies and rights remain under attack. Inflexible and compulsory sexual and gender binaries are used to oppress and deny people their humanity and agency. Otherwild believes in an inclusive, expanded and fluid notion of gender expression, identities and feminism. We support liberation, embrace our trans sisters and brothers, and call for the end of patriarchal ideology, domination, oppression and violence. The slogan also embodies the nurturing spirit of feminine energy that can be used to create healing on our planet. We believe that “The Future is Female” is the past, the present and the future, and is language that resonates. This special edition neoprene sweatshirt was designed by Otherwild for Print All Over Me on the occasion of Sexy Beast's 2016 Benefit for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. 87% of sweatshirt sale proceeds donated to Planned Parenthood Los Angeles.
