This chapter focuses on the important contributions of women to the initial establishment and growth of global Pentecostalism. The first part of the chapter outlines the role of key women at the Azusa Street Revival and how they launched out from Los Angeles to touch most corners of the globe. Following the brief background related to women at Azusa Street, the chapter surveys the lives and ministries of eleven women missionaries, evangelists and teachers from very different spheres. Some of these women were contemporary with Azusa Street, yet had little knowledge of that revival, while others came on the scene at a later period. Regardless, all shared a sense that they were a part of the same source of Pentecostal spirituality and constructed ministries that dynamically engaged the empowerment of their experience of Pentecostal Spirit baptism and were able to maintain control of those ministries despite pressures from men and organizational structures.
