May-Fourth Feminist and the Consumerist Pseudo-feminism are two feminist waves with high similarity in China. By reviewing 19 academic pieces of literature and further analyzing them, the paper does a comparison between the May-Fourth Feminist and the Consumerist Pseudo-feminism. The paper analyzes the common natures of these two waves and find the common reasons for their failure. Because of the divisions within gender, the participants in both movements, the small group of elite females, are too weak compared to the patriarchal society as a whole. Therefore, they have to show submissive to the patriarchal norms to some extent and alienate their original views and practices. This finding can be an alarm of the further feminist waves in China.
