"the status has changed little" does just that - it compares the current "state" to the "state" of the women before

it does compare the status before but how much before.. may be the status before the last century was same as the current one.

I choose 'B'

how much before is suggested by the use of "last century". Also, the use of present tense "is" in B is a no no - apart from the use of "a little" which suggests that the status has changed, albeit not a lot

yeah... "is" = not correct

"how it has been" is unecessary because the sentence says last century.

only leaves C.
