(B) arguing in a treatise for the equal legal and political right for women
(C) a treatise that advocates for the women's equal legal and political right
(D) a treatise advocating for the women's equal legal and political right
(E) a treatise arguing for the women's equal legal and political right
I didnt like C because I didnt feel advocates for is a good idiom. Didnt sound good to my ears
When they are acting as advocates for a cause, people often say they are “advocating for”—say, traffic safety. This is not as widely accepted as “campaigning for” or “working toward.” Saying you are “advocating for the blind” leaves a lot of listeners wondering what it is you advocate for them. If you can substitute “advocate” for “advocate for,” you should do so: “I advocate for higher pay for teachers” becomes “I advocate higher pay for teachers.”
