Probably not in the sense that we are talking about.
I spent a long time on Wikisposure (an anti-pedophile site) reading the profiles of the pedophiles in an attempt to learn about the condition. There were a few women on there with a sexual interest in children, but they did not seem to be the sort of fixated and preferential pedophiles with a dominant interest in kids that you see in males.
I don’t believe that merely having some or any sexual interest in children makes you a pedophile. Science seems to back me up on that matter.
