Margareth SPublished on
As women, we are still constantly facing discrimination and unfair treatment everywhere. Social pressures, standards, gender norms, and stereotyping that women still can’t break out from. It’s 2020, and women still can’t get equal rights and respect as men in many situations.
Lainey Molnar, a 31-year-old single illustrator, likes to share her thoughts through her skills in drawing. Her particularly favorite subject is to empower beautiful human beings called women. Social pressure exists even around the most modern settings, and she’s bringing awareness that time is changing – it’s really about time women can be free about what they want to be.

“We’re not faulty, we are exactly where we need to be.”
“Life choices don’t range from wrong to right based on societal expectations. No matter how you decide to live your life, or no matter what life decides for you, give everyone else respect and compassion, because we’re all doing our best.”
Molnar is an achieving individual in Hungary, her birth country. She was the first personal blogger who also runs a fashion store that’s related to her blog for eight years. She is now an active digital business strategist who specializes in working with women-owned businesses. She also works with content creators and help create a plan to grow their pages.

“Stages of regret.”
“Stop reading the news and bond with your loved ones.”
“Appreciate nice things for what they are, just things. The truly great things in life are really freaking simple.”
Molnar shares that her popularity comes with harassments and that made her take a step back from her blogging activities. It just so happens lockdown took place earlier this year, which gave her enough time to focus and make illustrations. And she did, everything related to social structures and her thoughts about them.
“All of these shapes are beautiful. Bumps, wobbles, stripes, jiggles, curves, muscles, bones – it’s just parts of a vessel to carry around your wonderful soul.”

Molnar’s drawings focus on the topics of de-stigmatization, whether that’s about a career woman, a childless woman, or mental issues. She often illustrates how her life as an independent 31-year-old can look reckless and unsure, but also at the same time, rewarding and endlessly thrilling. Happiness is not something that we can set for others – it’s something that we find out ourselves.
“Aren’t we done with this freaking year already?”

“Society’s perceived milestones shouldn’t affect how we view women.”
Molnar understands that there might be people who see those who walk differently from their ‘rules’ and standards may think ‘that won’t work.’ But that’s what Molnar wants to share: that it’s normal for women to make choices differently!
