It's been a really good week for wage equality. First, Obama announced two measures to help close the gender wage gap among federal workers. And, in honor of what's dubbed "Equal Pay Day," (April 8) thousands took to Twitter using the #withoutthewagegapiwould to share what they would do with the extra cash if there were no difference between what women and men earn for comparable jobs.

The hashtag was started by Elizabeth Plank and Soraya Chemaly in their PolicyMic piece on what women could do with all that extra cash.
