Bringing together women and family in quality perspective brings about interesting discussions in this paper. By integrating previous studies and considering expert opinions, we determine the variables and dimensions with respect to women's existence regarding their roles both in the family and at work. Many activities carried out by women represent the consumer aspects of their role. Women undertake these activities to fulfill their needs, which can be classified in the order of preference using Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. Women's success can be measured based on their ability to perform their roles successfully. We identify women's performance by using quality approach of Personal Quality Maintenance (PQM), which is widely applied in many organizations in order to maintain the service delivery, which meets the customer satisfaction. The effort to enhance women's satisfaction for their success in playing the multirole in the family and at work is our main consideration. This study may contribute a new point of view regarding women's welfare and existence.
