I mean, Baha'i women. Thanks for letting me know if this is the case.

Also, whether a formerly Muslim woman converted to the Baha'i faith can keep dressing as per the hijab code.

Not always. I think the tendency for Baha'i women would be to not wear a hijab if they don't have to, but in some countries it would be illegal or dangerous to go out without one, so they would follow the local custom. In all cases, women should dress with modesty, but the definition of modest dress varies between cultures.

Baha'u'llah said we have choice over how we dress, but must not allow ourselves to become "playthings of the ignorant." I have this discussion with my daughter on a regular basis!
