What is your definition of 'Woman of Substance'? Does this image inspire you to come out with a good description? I have read the novel Woman of Substance by Barbara Taylor Bradford and have also watched the movie, years ago.

A woman with a pipe in her mouth does not evoke a person of substance in my mind.

Have neither seen the Film or read the Book sorry. There are many women of substance that I can think of. For example my Auntie Gladys who was my Godmother lived next Door. That is for me my Woman of Substance. Also Helen Keller and a Polish Lady that rescued no less than t,000 Children out of the Ghetto In the Second World War. They broke her legs and arms but she lived till she was 98 and all the children she rescued went on to live and have Famiy. Very courageous Woman indeed.

@allknowing Something like courage to live how I have had to live and to go on having the same courage as they had. Not on their scale of course but a bit like it at least for me it is. How about you?

I have not read the novel or seen the movie. A woman of substance is a strong/intelligent woman in my opinion.

Have you come across anyone in your life or are you the one? I recommend you read the novel.

I have not read the book you mentioned, but to me, a woman has substance if she is tough, smart, and giving.

Great novel. Who would be a woman of substance in your life?

@allknowing That would be the principal of the school for which I taught. She was brilliant and she did away with all unnecessary activities that took time away from teaching. The school's tests scores rose dramatically. In the Chicago Tribune, a full page article was done on her. Amazing.

@Corbin5 Did her role in your life influence you in anyway?

Hm, I would assume a large, stout woman, or someone with moral character

Are you sure a woman of substance should be a stout woman? (lol)

I don't know if the image shown is very inspiring - but it could be.

Even I think that woman is not inspiring. Smoking does not make a woman, a woman of substance (lol) Anyone you know who is one?
