MAKE Magazine was the principal publication produced by Make, the organisation for women in the arts (formerly the Women's Art Library or Women Artists Slide Library prior to 1992).

Content focussed on historical and contemporary women's art practice and highlighted emerging and established artists from around the world. In addition to reviews and previews, content was made up of artists' projects, interviews and featured debates.

First published in 1983 as a newsletter for the Women Artists Slide Library, it was developed throughout the 1980s and early 1990s as a Journal and then Women's Art Magazine.

From a modest A3 document this publication culminated in a full colour 100 page final issue in 2002. The provocative stance of the magazine was established by a diverse range of editors ensuring its unique position amongst international arts publications.
