She is wearing a floral blouse, black skirt, pinny and lace-up shoes and has a feather duster tucked into her pinny. On the floor at her feet are two bottles of cleaning fluid and a duster. Some faint underdrawing can be seen.

public_access_description
This cartoon appeared in the Evening Standard on 5 January 2005, and is artist Marf's take on the current news story. As she describes it: 'The American hit television show Desperate Housewives - the biggest thing of its kind since Sex in the City - debuts on British television, starring a host of gorgeous, sexy and bored suburban women up to no good.' 'Marf' drew daily topical cartoons for the Evening Standard between March 2002 and August 2005, moving to the Londoner's Diary page in August 2003. The drawings cover key political and social issues of the period, providing a vivid and often hilarious response to the main news of the day. The Evening Standard is London's only evening newspaper, publishing up to five editions a day. In Marf's own words: 'The cartoonist needs to keep up with the rapid pace of event.'
