The Silver Moon Bookshop was a feminist bookshop on Charing Cross Road in London founded in 1984 by Jane Cholmeley and Sue Butterworth[1][2] In 1989 Silver Moon Bookshop won the Pandora Award for 'contributing most to promoting the status of women in publishing and related trades'.[1] In 1990 Colmeley and Butterworth established an associated publishing business Silver Moon Books.[2][3] Rising rents forced the shop to close in 2001.[4] It is now incorporated into Foyles bookshop.[5]
