In later years Zek began to experience a dramatic change in his policies. In 2373 he fell in love with Ishka, Quark’s mother and a radical feminist who became the “power behind the throne.” He eventually amended the Ferengi Bill of Opportunities to allow females the right to wear clothing. Few accepted this radical change at first, and Zek was ousted by Ferengi Commerce Authority liquidator Brunt. However, he was able to convince a few influential FCA commissioners that females represented an unexploited business opportunity, and Zek was reinstated. (DS9: “Ferengi Love Songs“, “Profit and Lace“)
Zek was an aficionado of Hupyrian beetle snuff. He was fairly liberal-minded for a Ferengi male, declaring his indifference towards Ferengi females who wore clothing inside the home, so long as they maintained the status quo by staying naked while in public.
