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!

Calling all bloggers! On Equal Pay Day – April 9, 2013 – the National Women’s Law Center will be hosting our annual Blog for Equal Pay Day blog carnival. And we want you to participate!

This June, it will be 50 years since President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act into law. And today, women still make just 77 cents for every dollar a man makes — that's nearly $11,000 in lost wages every year.

That’s why we’re asking bloggers to participate in this year’s Blog for Equal Pay Day by answering the question, “What would you do with your $11,000 in lost wages?” in your blog posts, but you’re also welcome to choose an alternative topic. Please feel free to include policy analysis, personal experiences, reports, graphs, etc in your blog posts as well!

NWLC will collect and publish links to the blog posts on Equal Pay Day (April 9, 2013). Click through for all the details you need to get involved in the blog carnival.

During the State of the Union, Why Not Play SOTU Bingo with @NWLC?

Posted by Danielle Jackson, Online Outreach Associate | Posted on: February 11, 2013 at 04:02 pm

NWLC's State of the Union BingoIt’s that time of the year again: the State of the Union address is Tuesday night. (You thought I was going for Valentine’s Day, right? Not today, at least.)

This time around, NWLC has put together a special Bingo card filled with issues that we hope President Obama will speak about – and a few fun items we think we might see during the speech! We’d love it if you’d play along with us.

Here’s how this will work:

  • Step 1: print out your very own copy of NWLC’s Bingo card.
  • Step 2: sign on to Twitter or Facebook between 8:30-9:00pm ET Tuesday night – and make sure you’re following us! Here are our Facebook profile and Twitter profile. Keep an eye on each for our posts on the State of the Union. On Facebook, we’ll have an entire thread dedicated to speech watching – so come join us and chat in the comments! On Twitter, we’ll be chatting using the hashtag #NWLCSOTU.
