1. a man/woman/person of substance = someone with a large amount of money or property

2. I know 'outrage' and 'modesty' but together, I think they mean something else. I would let others help.

a woman of substance... notable, maybe even worthy of respect (maybe she is rich, powerful, or even strong in character)

Hi,

women of substance:: according to my knowlegde it means beauty with brains.

Sorry, no. It's a standard expression that almost always means 'wealthy women'. Please read the earlier explanations.
