In brief: Not specificly

The present thinking on cervical cancer involves acquiring a virus during vaginal sex that may spend decades in your body before it begins to change your cervix & lead to cancer.Many strains of the virus exist & a man, circumcised or not, may carry it for decades without knowing it.
So any carrier man can pass it to you. A vaccine to prevent 4 strains is available but only helps before you get it.

There is an increased incidence of Cervical cancer in the partners of uncircumcised men who do not practice good penile hygene compared to circumcised men. Incidence of Cancer of cervix in Scandinavia, where few men are circumcised but practice good hygene is no different in wives of circumcised versus uncircumcised husbands!

In brief: Reduces risk

Partners of circumcised men, especially in countries where male hygiene is less than optimal, have a lower risk of developing cancer of the cervix.
Original landmark study was performed in fiji.
