it is not a test of whose rather it is a test of comparasion. the sentence is comparing noum after unlike with the noun that begains at the begaining of second clause.

B does the same. so it is correct.

This is a classic bad comparison situation. You should either compare women to women or craftwork to craftwork.

In addition, the words following the underlined part make it clear that the women are to be compared (craftwork cannot be paid for craftwork!)

So B it is.

In D, there is repetation in the second clause.
while that of ... and their craft work.

Look at the main sentence. The last part ends as :
...often received public recognition ....for their craftwork.

So, you know the subject of the sentence is Native women and NOT the craftwork. That's why Choice D will not work.
