Women of Substance is an annual event that celebrates Filipina empowerment. Held at the Godolphin Ballroom of Jumeirah Emirates Towers last 27th of March 2010, the usual afternoon-tea affair hosted by Illustrado Magazine blossomed into a huge gathering of over 500 Filipinos in the UAE.  This year’s program included preview of the mini-documentary film “The Empowered Filipina”, photo exhibit, mini-bazaar, talk show, awarding ceremony, fashion make-over and a special talk facilitated by renowned lawyer Katrina Legarda.
