Not initially, though. The role was meant from the start to be famale--she was to originally to be Captain Elizabeth Janeway--but the producers kept their options open and would have cast a male in the part if a female captain "didn't work out." Nigel Havers was one of the male actors considered if that came to pass.

When Bujold walked off the set, a number of the VOY cast expressed some concerns that the producers would indeed cast a male as the captain and would have caused them to make other cast changes (a male character might have to be rewritten as a female and vice-versa)...
Free your mind, and the rest will follow.
