A satire pokes fun at serious topics, like government, politics, etc.  "A Vindication of the Rights of Women" can fit into the satire category because the author criticizes the male-dominated society and how women have been treated unfairly through the use of satirical comments.  Sometimes authors can get away with a lot of criticism of serious topics through the use of satire because it is not "direct" criticism.  It is veiled, so to speak.
