I'm a woman and in 2014, I was picked to have my feet washed by the priest along with my husband and other 10 people. The reason was because there weren't more people in the pews, not enough.
...that's understandable... though troublesome... during such day, so few attend your parish?
...sadly, I've seen it done in other parishes, with hundreds attendees... it is done for that ole sake of "inclusiveness."
Liberties are taken that serve very little purpose--I would argue that they serve to confuse matters and inject dissention since they tend to set the wrong example (as with girls/women servers--"a good idea" that can cause boys/men to distance themselves from the Altar (possible Priestly Vocation) and fuel the wrong feminist concerns).
