The only woman ever to be a member of the Queensborough Community College physics department, Moché filed a sex discrimination suit against Queensborough Community College and City University of New York in 1976. The New York State Division of Human Rights found "probable cause" supporting Moché's complaint. She continued her struggle for equal treatment during the 1980s and 1990s. Moché is the author of over 20 books, including Astronomy: Self Teaching Guide, Astronomy Today, If You Were An Astronaut, Magic Science Tricks, My First Book About Space, and Physics in your Future. She is also a frequent contributor to scientific journals and lectures widely to lay audiences. She was a National Science Foundation Faculty Fellow (1976) and was invited to the White House for a conference on America's Future in Space (1984).
