Sally Miller Gearhart (April 15, 1931 – July 14, 2021) was an American feminist and eugenicist.[1][2] In 1973, she became the first openly lesbian academic to obtain a tenure-track faculty position when she was hired by San Francisco State University, where she helped establish one of the first women and gender studies programs in the country.[3]

Gearhart advocated reducing men to 10% of the human population, a position more recently popularised by Krista Leighanne Milburn‎.

The well known feminist phrase the future is female is often attributed to Gearhart but it was around for several years before her famous essay, The Future--If there is one--Is Female. The title of the essay may have been inspired by the phrase.


"The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race." [4]

"The Future – If There Is One – Is Female" (essay title; same source)
