The phrase The future is female is a common feminist slogan. The plain meaning of these words is that men will need to take a step back, apparently for alleged transgressions men committed against women in former times.

Feminists assert that this slogan actually means that the future will be egalitarian.[1][2] Most feminists are apparently unaware that the slogan originated among separatist feminists in the 1970s and was intended to be an expression of female supremacy.[3] The phrase has been attributed specifically to Sally Miller Gearhart as a result of her essay The Future--If there is one--Is Female.

The phrase has been heavily critiqued by non-feminists and even casual feminists for its misandric implications.[4][5][6]
