Stress the urgency of an issue

The passage is adapted from Virginia Woolf, Three Guineas. The passage talks about the situation of women in English society. The writer has highlighted the urgency of the issue which is the procession of the sons of educated men. 
The passage highlights the question that why women are prohibited from doing professional work, why they are seeing the men going to the office behind the curtained windows. The writer has insisted women to think about her position in society through the passage and has ignited the desire of joining the procession. 
Thus, the writer has shown the urgency of the issue so option B is the correct answer.
