In general, four major factors are in place to support women's entries into the film communities: the nature of film industries, the availability of social patronage, the privileges accorded by social class, and education. These four factors play different roles in supporting women to be a part of their directing circles. To sum up, social change and education are the key elements in drawing Korean women from the shadow into the light of opportunities, while social patronage and class are placed in priorities for Southeast Asian women. In all cases, education is a key factor to promote them in integrating into the film industries. These four factors are either interconnected or single-handed in influencing women in their respective film industries.
