Pat Horn initially got exposed to politics in the early 1970s through her involvement with adult literacy projects during her days as a university student. In 1975 she raised funds and started a literacy project involving factory workers in the Western Cape. In 1976 Pat moved to Durban where she was to set up a similar project. It is in Durban that she first got to work closely with trade unionists. Her work with trade unions led to her receiving a banning order that was to last until 1981.
