Is it polygamy if a woman marries more than one man

Yes. The dictionary definition of polygamy does not differentiate between a man having or a woman having more than one spouse.

The general term is polygamy. When a man marries more than one woman it is called polygyny. When a women marries more than one it is called polyandry.

There is also bigamy which is the term used for a person who knowingly marries while still married to someone else. Their “new” spouse is unaware of the existing marriage and bigamy is a felony.
