The Charing Cross Road shop
The Silver Moon women's bookshop was founded in 1984 in Charing Cross Road, London, by Jane Cholmeley and her business partner Sue Butterworth. It stocked only books by women or books about women, with extensive coverage of feminist and lesbian titles. The shop was also a resource centre for women's issues, and hosted author events by writers such as Margaret Atwood, Germaine Greer, Kate Millett and Beryl Bainbridge.

The bookshop closed in November 2001,[1] but re-opened the following year as a specialist department within Foyle's bookshop further up Charing Cross Road.[2]
