Silver Moon Bookshop
The Silver Moon Bookshop was a feminist bookshop on Charing Cross Road in London founded in 1984 by Jane Cholmeley and Sue Butterworth, its name derived from the two symbols of womanhood from a poem by Sappho.
In 1989 Silver Moon Bookshop won the Pandora Award for "contributing most to promoting the status of women in publishing and related trades". In 1990 Cholmeley and Butterworth established an associated publishing business Silver Moon Books. After 17 years, rising rents forced the shop to close in 2001. It was then incorporated into Foyles bookshop, till 2004, when the Silver Moon department closed.
