Lynette thesis

Desperate Housewives's Lynette Scavo isn't actually your typical domestic housewife. In addition to being the Corporate Senior Vice President of an advertising company, Lynette skillfully maintains responsibility of the household as the proud wife of Tom Scavo and a mother of four, until her old-fashioned handyman challenges her authority by going over her head to ask for Tom's opinion about his tasks in "Everybody Ought to Have a Maid," where a power struggle debunks the traditional notions of female roles.
