    Question about " woman of substance"

    What is exactly " woman of substance" mean? It seems to me that a lot of people take it as a money thing. But I think it should not. I would like to hear more from other people.

    Re: about " woman of substance"

    'A woman of substance' is, to me, one with considerable money behind her, and I would also generally say a good social standing, with influence.
