Yes, ‘Umrah was prescribed for men and women alike.

It was narrated that ‘Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said, “I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, is
Jihad obligatory for women?’ He said: “Yes: Upon them is a Jihad in which there
is no fighting: Al-Hajj and Al-‘Umrah.” Narrated in the Masnad of Imam Ahmad
