A---option A suggests that Mott published her discourse while arguing in a treatise..so by meaning analysis it 's clear Modifier(verb ing+Noun phrase) is distorting the meaning...i am not sure but may be argue for is better idiomatic use.. B-Same error,C-I believe possessive use is dubious here--women's equal political and legal rights Vs equal political and legal right for women and then origin use of "argue" should be preferred over "advocate"..i am not sure but it might be changing the meaning..
