Lainey Molnar is on a mission to call out society on the infinite sexist and unrealistic pressures it places on women. The 33-year-old artist from Hungary illustrates the reality of what it is like to be a woman in this day and age through comics that explore topics like femininity, double standards, societal pressures, expectations and other problematic norms that modern independent women face. "I believe that the pressure on women comes from both inside our own community and outside, be it family, media, or men," Molnar told Bored Panda.
"It is incredibly hard to navigate all of their expectations and reach the milestones society has set out for us, like maintaining the perfect size and shape, being maternal but also ambitious, strong but also sensitive, staying youthful and fresh while gracefully accepting the aging process, looking ideal but not overdoing plastic surgery. I could go on and on and on, and we are all so tired of this," she added. Molnar, who works as a digital business strategist, has more than 1 million followers on Instagram where she regularly posts artwork that's highly relatable to women today.
"The idea to start drawing about the vulnerability that is actually our biggest strength came naturally to me," she explained. "I think us women (womxn, actually) need to stick together to break the barriers and push these topics so far that eventually, nobody would even question 'alternative' life choices that are out of our control anymore."
