Social Sciences - Social Science, Sociology, Ethics, etc. / Feminism
Spanish term or phrase: futurible
From an acaemic article on the current state of feminism and feminist music, written in Spain:

"El feminismo ha entrado de lleno como huracán para redefinir lo político, lo social, lo ***futurible***."

"El feminismo está superando sus trabas simbólicas, yendo más allá de lo meramente simbólico, cuestionando la representación y lo material, pujando por ser inclusivo, ***futurible***, híbrido, colectivo y específico."

Thanks!

  -> I studied translation under Eugene Nida, who emphasized "dynamic equivalence." The idea is to create the same effect in the target language. I'm not in favor of a standard journalistic style for all translations; I try to adapt to the author's style.

(lo) futurible
forward-looking (thinking)


Explanation:
David H. is right about 2 different contexts. So a change in 'clairvoyant' perspective is needed.

what could become a reality/potential


Explanation:
Los traduciría de distinta manera.
En el primer caso de futurible pondría la primera mitad y en el segundo caso, "potential". Me parece lo más seguro.
