The Pacific Women's Graphic Arts Cooperative, in co-operation with Press Gang Publishers (a feminist press in Vancouver), produced Makara magazine from 1975 to 1978. The magazine was billed as "The Canadian magazine by women for people," and sought to explore alternatives to traditional journal structures and work toward positive social change. Makara is a general interest magazine that reflects a wide range of interests and philosophies, and contains fiction, articles, interviews and dialogue, features, and children's section. The Co-operative, consisting of ten women, controlled the majority of production, with printing and four-colour layout done by Press Gang. Makara stopped publishing after 13 issues because it was not self-supporting; sales and advertising revenues did not cover printing costs or salaries.
