Abstract: The thesis deals with the graffiti found in female and male public restrooms in Vilnius and Kaunas. The author's intent is to study the linguistic landscape on bathroom graffiti in Lithuania and to introduce the reader to the history of Lithuanian graffiti. The material consists of 234 samples of graffiti. The research is carried out through qualitative and quantitative analysis, and the samples were analyzed using the Grounded theory analysis method. The goal is to investigate the attitudes in toilet graffiti in order to get an insight into the kind of stances found in men and women. It aims to draw a raw and unpolished picture of Vilnius; and Kaunas' societies. Following the Grounded theory analysis method, the author has not postulated any research questions, though she intends to research the languages used in the graffiti, what kind of topics the graffiti have, who they are addressed to, and the communicative language functions. The study aims to introduce the reader to the history of Lithuanian graffiti, and to compare the graffiti found in the female and male restrooms, thus analyzing gender differences in using language.
