The 'Women In Film' season runs from Monday 7 - Sunday 13 March, and will include films such as Thelma & Louise, Erin Brockovich and Cleopatra.

Other nods to the occassion will include a women-only anchor day on Sky News, whilst an all-female episode of The Book Show will be broadcast on Sky Arts. Sky Atlantic will also premiere Christy Turlington’s documentary No Woman, No Cry on 13 March.

To mark the Women In Film season, we've selected our top 30 female actresses from some of our favourite movies - and we're also giving you the chance to win a year's SKY+ HD subscription. To enter, simply take a look at our gallery of leading ladies below, pick your personal favourite and email their name to us at skymovies@stylist.co.uk, along with your name, address and telephone number.
