here present perfect is required since the action is from past and coming till present.

That leaves us with (C) & (D). I think both are equally bad.
IMO, (C) would have been better if it would have been [color=blue]has changed little from how it was[/color]

Still, of the two I will choose (C)

all the other choices besides C are redundant. "change" means that something is different from the way it was. Hence, "changed from how it was" or any variation thereof is redundant

I was stuck up between C & D, but yes since there is redundancy for change, I choose C

(C) is the only option looks fine. Although, IMO, the new woman PM was elected only recently (in the 21st century) and the author is trying to compare the current situation of women with that of the last century (the 20th century). Therefore, any option which would read as "..has changed little (in comparison with the situation in the last century).. " should be fine. However, in the absence of such an option, I'd go with (C).

on second thought, I agree with C. Its not as wordy or redundant.
