Rambam in Mishneh Torah Hilchos Eidus 9 (1) gives ten categories of disqualifications. Any person belonging to one of them is not acceptable as a witness. The tenth one is people who have a vested interest in the matter So we see that someone with a vested interest in the outcome of the case is disqualified as a witness.


Pesach Hadvir 268:7 - line 10 says that since Vayechulu is a Eidus that is well known, even ladies can be witnesses for this. On line 15 he says that a man and lady can say it together. Kaf Hachaim 268:36 mentions this source.
