Must think TV

Tonight is Sunday and that means 3 things for me - Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sister!

I just finished watching Desperate Housewives and I was reminded of an article I read a few weeks back in class.

The article is a conversation between two feminists arguing about the feminist/anti-feminist messages being sent in the show Desperate Housewives.

I'm a HUGE fan of the show and have never missed a show, but I'm not sure how I feel about this argument.

What do you think? Is it sending positive messages to women or is it a tired throwback to old-fashioned misogyny?
