The article presents the American series 'Desperate Housewives' as seen through the prism of the gender and queer theory. The authoress looks at how gender of the main female characters of the series is constructed and presented, and asks whether a mainstream series can challenge dominant culture's presentations of gender. The series 'Desperate Housewives' then serves as a pretext for analysis, not only of how images of gender are constructed, but also on subversive nature of pop culture. She refers in her work to theoretical concepts of Judith Butler and Susan Sontag.
