Hijab has been positioned as an attribute that represents religious devotion or a form of bodily oppression. The use of Hijab in Indonesia – the country with the largest Muslim population in the world – is recontextualized and redefined through the various discussion of hijab discourse which then transformed into the representation of modernity attributed to higher class status of women. This discourse analysis (as part of multiyear research) examines how the distinctive authorial voices and stances towards Hijab in Indonesia on a Q1 and Q2scopus-indexed journal article. The article was selected by using stratified purposeful sampling. This study was conducted by scrutinizing the lexis as well as syntax used, deploying Hallidayan transitivity system along with the language evaluation theory developed by Martin and White. The preliminary finding reveals that the authors demonstrate textual alignment, reaffirming positive representation of the act of redefining the hijab discourse in Indonesia through the use of acknowledge attribution and the strategy of concessions in the language used.
