Today is Equal Pay Day! These days, women still make just 77 cents for every dollar a man makes, adding up to nearly $11,000 in lost wages every year. So this year we asked bloggers to answer the question, “What would you do with your $11,000 in lost wages?”

After the jump, you’ll find links to blog posts from NWLC staff members and from our participants. Keep checking back here for the latest posts!

p.s. Are you on Twitter? Join us at 1:00pm ET for a tweetchat on equal pay and the wage gap. Our official chat hashtag is #TalkPay, and we’ll be joined by Lilly Ledbetter and other special guests!
