If you read the sentence as a whole the comparison is clearer.

There is a problem with tense - "rose" is past tense so her "being" a woman makes more sense.

I agree A sounds right.

But E is the most grammatically correct one.

In A, "than she" is better than "than her", "was" is better than "being".

I think E is correct. Because--
That ..that similarity
Just flip the sentence--
more of a landmark in the industry is That the new managing editor rose from the publications soft news sections to a leadership position than...(that she is a woman).
I guess E seems here right.

OA = A.

This question as many of you may know is from the Brutal SC 70 set. Are these questions representative of the actual GMAT Q's? Let me know cause I'm starting to freak out.

Hate to be here on a Friday evening:) Have a good weekend guys!

A. her being a woman (Incorrect and does not fit in the sentence)
B. being a woman is (her gender is not what is being compared here)
C. her womanhood (incorrect)
D. that she was a woman ( Not appropriate. "Was" used in this context is not appropriate)
E. that she is a woman

E it is for me

I dont think so, the way you flip the sentence really changes the meaning.
Now you are comparing "that the new managing editor...position" with "that she is a woman".
I believe we should compare "a landmark in the industry" with "her being a woman".

A for me.

I would like to opt for E. Here are few of my reasons.

1) GMAT hates to use "being", so A as well as B should be dropped.
2) It is not that She was a woman, still she is a woman, Because that parallels with her rise is more of a landmark in the industry.
3) Her is objective case of word while we should use a subjective case which is "She" and not her.

I agree that we SHOULD avoid "being", but not MUST avoid. Actually I have seen several questions in which the uses of "being" is the best choices. Here is an example:

1. A mixture of poems and short fiction, Jean Toomer’s Cane has been called one of the three best novels ever written by Black Americans—the others being Richard Wright, author of Native Son, and Ralph Ellison, author of Invisible Man.
A. Black Americans—the others being Richard Wright, author of Native Son, and Ralph Ellison, author of Invisible Man
B. Black Americans—including Native Son by Richard Wright and Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
C. a Black American—including Richard Wright, author of Native Son, and Ralph Ellison, author of Invisible Man
D. a Black American—the others being Richard Wright, author of Native Son, and Ralph Ellison, author of Invisible Man
E. a Black American—the others being Richard Wright’s Native Son and Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man
