How do we define "harassment".

Let me check the Canadian Human Rights Commission for an example.

Harassment is a form of discrimination. It includes any unwanted physical or verbal behaviour that offends or humiliates you. Generally, harassment is a behaviour that persists over time. Serious one-time incidents can also sometimes be considered harassment.

Harassment occurs when someone
makes unwelcome remarks or jokes about your race, religion, sex, age, disability or any other of the grounds of discrimination;
threatens or intimidates you because of your race, religion, sex, age, disability or any other of the grounds of discrimination;
makes unwelcome physical contact with you, such as touching, patting, or pinching.

Examples of Harassment
A colleague repeatedly makes fun of your hijab
A manager regularly makes inappropriate comments about your physical appearance
An employee threatens your safety following a heated discussion
A supervisor rubs your shoulders despite your repeated objections
