To make sense of the sentence we need a pronoun reference "her" in the sentence to indicate that the new "managing editor" is a woman.

Otherwise the comparison would be between "rising" to a managing editor position and a woman/womanhood.

B. being a woman is
No correlation between between Mging Ed and woman.

C. her womanhood
Comparing rising to womanhood??

D. that she was a woman
comparing rising to Mging Ed. with woman.

E. that she is a woman
Same as above.

Answer: A.

I am not completly sure if this sentence is grammatically correct.

I guess E would be the best choice (ll'ism), but if the question were written a tad more clear it would probably be A.

I understand the parallelism and the meaning of the sentence. However, why is there an of in more of a landmark?

I agree with E.

That she rose from Z to R is more of X than that she is a Y
