This research reveals double-voiced discourse and ideologies found in dialogues of Susan Glaspell’s Trifles. This research is categorized as a qualitative study. It does not need numbers to analyze the data. The data was taken from Glaspell’s Trifles text by applying close-reading and identified by applying Bakhtin’s double-voiced discourse (1981) and Baxter’s double-voiced discourse functions (2014). It also applied Kate Millet’s Sexual Politics (2000) and Putnam Tong’s Feminist Thought (2009) to analyze the ideologies found in the text. There are thirteen double-voiced discourses found in Trifles. They represent two opposite ideologies; patriarchy and feminism delivered by the male and female characters. The discourses show three types of double-voiced discourse; personal power, debate ideas, and building solidarity. The male characters, Sheriff and County Attorney use the discourses to display personal power representing patriarchal ideology. Meanwhile, the female characters, Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters use the discourses to debate ideas and build their solidarity as women that show feminism as an ideology. Keywords: double-voiced discourse, Susan Glaspell, Trifles, Bakhtin, Baxter
