Yes. Might take some mental acrobatics to make her an erotic figurehead though... ho-hum.
But I am convinced some peripheral characters can be dreamed up, who do the usual endorsement stuff of the times. I even came a cross a reference to circumcision in a book by Gabriel Garcia Marquez which plays in Columbia at the time; a famous doctor who studied in Paris and engages his new wife on the topic, if briefly. Long story short, Victorian era and circs goes well in any event.
