The whole bit was / is about women using their power, influence, themselves to make the world a better place for everyone. Doesn't matter if *you* know who they are or not.

I was curious about The Women of Iceland. Did they do a coup or something?
They protested not earning the same earnings as men doing the same jobs they were working.

I remember some Iceland video where they took over power which is illegal I might add. At least in a democracy.

So, can anyone confirm if the visuals for the European leg have stayed the same as the American one?  Are they still using the Morleigh clip for TTYW?
No changes as far as I'm aware.

I thought the sound at the concert was really bad, Ive seen them many times and thought this was the worst.  I couldn't hear what Bono was saying sometimes when he talked between songs and when I heard the song the Waterboys, the whole of the moon, before U2 came on it sound not very clear like the sound engineers had it all wrong and my worst fears become true as the concert went began. I was sat in mid tier near the stage.  The SOE concert I saw in 2015 the sound and Bonos voice was excellent  Did anyone else had the same complaint :'(

They went shopping and started a party food revolution with the help of several large freezers.

Yes, Bono's voice was muffled in between songs when they were on the B-stage.  I could hear better when they were on the mainstage.  That said, I mistook Noel's dedication of 'Don't Look Back In Anger' to 'London Town' and not 'Grenfell Tower' as I really struggled to hear what he was saying up on that stage, so assumed he said "Manchester" (correct) and "London" (not strictly correct).  I was in the first 15 or so rows back from the B-stage, toward the RZ.

Yeah completely agree... the sound was terrible where we were (block L9).  It was my first concert at Twickeham as I saw the Vertigo tour at Cardiff so I don't have anything to compare it to.  It was hard to make out what Bono was saying most of the time and the sound was very muddy.

Saw them around 1995-1996 time and the hit was out around 1996 or 1997.  Then they disappeared.
