    women of/with achievement(s)

    They are all women of great achievement / of great achievements.
    They are all women with great achievements.

    Are all three sentences good English?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: women of/with achievement(s)

    They don't sound very natural to me. I would use something like They are all women who have achieved great things/a lot/a great deal.

    Re: women of/with achievement(s)

    Thanks a lot, administrator. Then how about 'They are all women who've made great achievements'? Does it sound natural?

    Thank you again.

    Re: women of/with achievement(s)

    In my textbook there is a unit called 'WOMEN OF ACHIEVEMENT'. It seems that 'WOMEN OF ACHIEVEMENT' can be used as a title, but not in normal speech, doesn't it?

    Thank you again.

    It does not sound particularly natural to me, even as a title.
