Answer:

Yes

Explanation:

Men and women have an equal number of bones in their respective bodies - this includes the number of ribs (for anyone thinking that men have one fewer ribs than women because of the Biblical Adam and Eve story).

There are some subtle differences between the male and female skeleton (for instance, women have a more rounded pelvis) which are detailed in this link:
