What are we talking about? about feminists or novels?
I think the latter.

E) Unlike those ( novels) of modern feminism, which derive much of their strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holley’ s novels...

is the best.

It is between D and E.

(D) Unlike those of the modern feminist who derives much of her strength from rejection of an oppressive home, novels of Marietta Holley
(E) Unlike those of modern feminism, which derive much of their strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holley’ s novels

D and E both imply comparison between novels. E implies that novels are written by feminism, which is incorrect. I would go with D.

I would go with D too. E compares novel's of feminism with novel's of Marietta Holley.

Arash,

'D' is grammatically correct but distorts the meaning, voilates llism.

It says, Unlike novels of modern feminist who derives xyz...., novels do something...

I also choose E, however, could anyone explain whether this is correct or not?

This is correct. Look at the complete sentence...
"those of modern feminism, which derive"

"which" refers to "those" or "novels", a plural noun, so "derive" is correct!
