The brick and mortar store Otherwild has closed, and Otherwild the idea/the brand will return in some iteration. In the meantime, as long-term friends, Womencrafts bought their remaining inventory of shirts. These are the final shirts available.
THE FUTURE IS FEMALE T-shirts were originally designed in the early 1970s for Labyris Books, the first women’s bookstore in New York City. Otherwild discovered them through @h_e_r_s_t_o_r_y’s Instagram account.
THE FUTURE IS FEMALE “has lasted through the decades and is reemerging as an empowering statement for all, as female-identified bodies and rights remain under attack. Inflexibile 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 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, and is language that resonates.”
