The term "madam" (which is derived from the French for "woman") can have several meanings. It can be an address to a woman, such as, "may I help you, madam?". It can be a term of respect, instead of just calling a woman, "hey you". It also is sometimes used to referred to the head woman of a house of prostitution.
