Artist Lainey Molnar is back! This time, she’s exploring everything from body image, motherhood, freedom of choice, women, and stereotypes. The mission is to call out the societal sexism and unrealistic pressures it places on women. The 33-Year-Old strongly believes the pressure comes from both inside our community and outside, be it family, media, or MEN.
Molnar, who works as a digital business strategist, through her illustrations shows it’s somewhat unrealistic to navigate all of society’s expectations and reach the milestones, which include maintaining a perfect size and shape, being strong but also sensitive, maternal but also ambitious, staying youthful and fresh while accepting the aging process and looking ideal but not overdoing plastic surgery.
The Hungary-based advises that women [womxn, actually] need to stick together to break the barriers, to the extent nobody would question alternative life choices anymore. However, besides being inspired by her own experience, Molnar also gets tips from other content creators, who have been inspiring people to understand the situations thousands or even millions of women go through.
Feedback for the artist has been positive and interestingly, Molnar intends to resume writing. Her first book had been launched in her native Hungarian in 2014. The author, for her next book, [coming soonest] will share her story along with drawings and the wisdom she has picked about womanhood over the years! Its fingers crossed but then, which of these illustrations [compiled in this article] do you find relatable to your situation?
