Looks like A

B has 'requires' and 'should', which somehow seems wrong to me. Moreover, it compares "jobs held by women" with "job held by men".

looks like ConkergMat edited the question. From the way it is currently posed I would go with E.

requires of both public and private employers that pay be the..
that is not appropriate here. above sentence is ambiguous you can read the sentence

requires of both "public and private employer" that pay.. --here looks like that modifies "public and private employer"
requires of both "public" and "private employer that pay be.." -- here that modifies only "private employer"

So A and B are ruled out.

C and D are awkward and not parallel
E looks best.. as much.. as correct idiom and also
"for job historically held by women" || "for jobs demanding...."

This is a subjunctive mood question.

A is the only option here
