I would go with E too for the correct comparisons.

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 Holleyâ€™ 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?

modern feminism, which derive

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!
