Madam is the word to call a woman with respect. Of course it has another meaning. Is there another word used to call a woman with respect?

There's dame, ma'am, lady, or noblewoman. Unfortunately, most of these are reserved titles for royalty. The one I find the most commonly used is ma'am (which is short for madam), although this too is a term used in Britain to address the queen or a royal princess according to Dictionary.com.
To some extent it also depends upon the context. @Bill provides helpful examples pertaining to royalty.
You can also use Miss, Ms, Mrs. suffixed by first or last name depending upon her position relative to the speaker.
