This article is based on fieldwork carried out in two Pentecostal congregations in Durban, South Africa. It deals with attitudes to power, leadership and authority among women in the two congregations. The Pentecostal movement´s reaction to modernisation and social change, including gender equality, differs depending on the particular cultural context in where it is situated. By looking at both what the women are saying on these matters and what they do in different contexts, the attitudes are viewed from different angels.
