Praxis was organized in 1996 by activists in the battered women’s movement to work with other social change activists seeking to end violence against women. Praxis helps advocacy organizations and inter-agency collaborations analyze how institutions of social control can be challenged to adopt practices and philosophical approaches that promote autonomy, integrity and safety for women and their children. In 1997, we developed a method of analyzing criminal justice and human service agency responses to women who are abused by their partners. This analysis of institutional practices is called an ethnography, or audit.
