The original idea for this episode came from René Echevarria
; "We were all at lunch, talking about doing an episode about Moogie, the feminist movement, and giving Ferengi women the right to vote. It was a very preliminary discussion, and I said, 'I have this feeling that Quark ends up in a dress. I don't know why, but I think somehow Quark and Rom have to masquerade as women in order to pull something off." Echevarria's idea was seized upon by Ira Steven Behr
, although he knew that the proposed episode carried risks; "The idea was to do a character comedy. We wanted to take this misogynist character and make him into a woman. But it's very difficult, for a lot of reasons, to get people on board with stuff like this, and when they do get on board they tend to go too far, or too broad, or they lose the reality, or they're not comfortable with it. And if any of those things are true, it won't work." See more
Ferengi culture seems to have developed a well-defined sense of female fashion, highly distinct from the way males dress, which is odd in a culture where women have never been able to wear clothes. See more
