When Kate Winslet received the prestigious Peter J. Owens Award for Acting from SFFILM in San Francisco last week, she took the opportunity to honor six famous women who have been role models throughout her career.

"All of these women have taught me about determination, strength, and stamina, being properly prepared to play a role, but most importantly and above all else, about looking out for one another. It's through these women that I have learned about sisterhood in the working world, which today could not be more crucial. Indeed, we must depend on it."

Here are the six women who have inspired Kate.
