The survey, which was carried out by YWCA "She Speaks" survey of 1650 women aged from 15 to 30 as a part of International Women's Day celebrations found that more than three in four girls and young women aspire to leadership roles, News.com.au reports.

According to the survey, the most admired woman were mothers, followed by Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

The survey further said that 40 percent of the voters who chose female professional acquaintances as the women they most admired have identified women bosses as the 'most admired'.

YWCA communications manager Chelsea Lewis said the survey showed most women were aspirational in their work and lives, adding that a lack of confidence is a strong barrier for those who do not aspire to be leaders.

Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement chief executive officer Cheryl Axleby said that female leaders at work had the compassion and knowledge to be role models for young women.
