But she has the Zechus of Torah anyway - נשים במאי זכיין וכו - so when you learn you awaken that Zechus.
What about a woman taking on something in the area of Tznius for a man?

What happens to the souls which are not resurrected?
Do they exist forever in some sort of "limbo" ?
They either disappear totally or they stay in Gehennom forever, depending on how bad they were (for the second case, see Rashi Chagigah 16b).

1) Would a Torah-observant Ben Noach / Bas Noach merit Tichiyas HaMeisim and Olam Haba?
2) If, instead, a non-Jew is an Xtain, Muslim, etc. at the time of death,
does his/her soul also disappear after death or stay in Gehennom forever, depending on how bad he/she was?

Shiva - If he wants to he can but there is no obligation to do so. (But if saying this to the mourner would hurt him, don't say it. What I'm saying here is the bare-bones Halachah. How to handle this sensitive situation in real life is a different matter altogether.)
Should a Baal Tshuvah sit Shiva and say Kaddish, keep Yartzeit, and say Yizkor 4 times a year
