I was browsing the Notitae site and came across the following:

Quote:
16. Whether in a Mass with the participation of women only (e.g., in houses of religious women) a woman, properly trained, can assume the role of lector?

Resp.: In the negative. The role of lector is a liturgical role, which is entrusted only to men. In such a case, the Epistle should be read by the celebrant.

How authoritative is this, and does it still apply?

Check out the beautiful Chant performed in English at the link above. I wish there was more of this going on. I love traditional chant, I love being able to understand traditional chant, and I don't speak Latin.

That is in 1965, and hence irrelevant to the new rite of Mass. It was a clerification only needed because of the novel practice of have a lay reader in low Mass with the "1965 Mass" (Inter Oecumenici). The current law, following the abolishing of the ancient minor orders and the subdiaconate, established two "instituted ministries" in their place, lector and acolyte, to which only men may be admitted. However laity of either sex can fulfill the role of reading in the absence of a lector.

cf. http://notitiae.ipsissima-verba.org/pdf ... 64-164.pdf

Here we see that women may be extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist (they use Eucharist, not communion), lectors and stopping short of altar servers (pre-1983 CIC was in force)

Doubt it still applies since it refers to the older Missal.
