Dr. Florence McConney was upset when Women’s College Hospital (WCH) allowed male doctors on its medical staff. Like many early women doctors, she had faced gender discrimination. She believed WCH should remain a hospital for women run by women doctors. In 1961 WCH became a teaching hospital. The University of Toronto required it to allow male doctors and interns.
